Greyhound racing authorities publicly call it ‘abhorrent’. They also say it has been ‘outlawed’. But that hasn’t stopped high profile trainers across the country from subjecting defenceless animals to barbaric live baiting rituals in an attempt to gain a ‘winning’ edge on the racetrack.

They’re the victims you’ll never see at the racetrack. Tied up, terrified, and savagely mauled in widespread ‘live baiting’ sessions. Groundbreaking Animals Australia / Animal Liberation Qld investigations uncover the shocking truth. More @http://www.GreyhoundCruelty.com

***WARNING*** Please note that this video contains footage of which many will find distressing. To take immediate action to help animals without watching the video, head to http://www.GreyhoundCruelty.com

POSSUMS  

Native possums — a protected species — were also tied to lures and flung violently around training tracks. Before being used as live bait, one mother possum watched on helplessly as her baby was killed in front of her.

PIGLETS  

Piglets — one of the most intelligent and sensitive of all species — were a common choice among live baiters. Their futile squeals could be heard as their bodies were torn apart.

RABBITS  

After several laps, rabbits with pieces torn from their bodies twitch and writhe in agony. Their spine-chilling screams ring out across the training track.

KITTENS  

While investigation footage captured only piglets, rabbits and possums — kittens have long been reported to be among the victims of live baiting, too.

Investigation footage shows naturally gentle dogs provoked into displaying aggressive and violent behaviour in ‘blooding’ sessions. Those who don’t race fast enough to turn a profit are often killed — sometimes they are shot.

The inherent conflict of interest presented by those ‘promoting’ the sport also ‘policing’ it could not be more damning. While self-regulation continues, there can be little hope that live baiting will ever be eradicated from this industry.

You can help put a stop to this cruelty. Make your voice heard today.

The damning Animals Australia and Animal Liberation Qld investigations have revealed that this sadistic training method is all too common.Terrified piglets, rabbits and native possums are all victims of live baiting — tied to lures, flung around racetracks at breakneck speeds, and then mauled to death. Some animals who survived their first attack were ‘re-used’ multiple times…

Bait‘ animals are not the only victims of this industry. Greyhounds themselves — naturally gentle dogs — are often kept in deplorable living conditions off-track. Live baiters will taunt and incite their dogs to chase, attack, and ultimately kill small animals.

If dogs fail to ‘perform’, they too may be killed. Industry-wide, some 18,000 greyhounds are killed every year because they aren’t deemed fast enough to win races.

The big question is — how can state governments and sponsors continue to support an industry that has been exposed for such abhorrent widespread illegal activity?

With the horrific revelations of live baiting cruelty in the greyhound racing industry following our investigations, I have been desperate to share with you a side to greyhounds that didn’t make it to the media this week. This little video has gone viral — watch it now and you’ll see why!

Despite their deep pockets, greyhound racing authorities have utterly failed to take effective action to address shocking brutality and illegal activity at the heart of this ‘sport’. Apparently, they didn’t even know about it. That is, until investigations by two small charities on a shoestring budget exposed routine and systemic ‘live baiting’…

 Something else that will you make you smile: Schweppes, Hyundai and Bendigo Bank are just some of the big names to end their support of this cruel industry in recent days:
Schweppes, Hyundai, McDonald's, Autobarn, Bendigo Bank, Century 21In fact, of all the major corporate supporters, just one company continues to support greyhound racing. Click here to see who’s left.
 The greyhound racing industry is on notice. Those who are willing to tie up, torture and kill animals in pursuit of a ‘win’ now have a national spotlight on their activities for the first time. With dozens of trainers now suspended, thousands of possums, rabbits and piglets will now be spared from the horror of being used as ‘live bait’. But while greyhound racing continues, we fear that innocent animals will still be tied up and mauled to death on private training tracks — albeit more carefully hidden.

If you haven’t already, please click here to add your voice to over 100,000 people taking a stand against greyhound racing cruelty. If you have — please share this with your friends and family today.

TAKE ACTION NOW

Together we can end greyhound racing cruelty, once and for all.

 Thank you.

Animals Australia and our colleagues at Animal Liberation Qld have been overwhelmed by the response to our investigations into the greyhound racing industry. Because you spoke out, this industry is under more scrutiny than ever before. State governments have launched inquiries; industry heavyweights have been stood down; sponsors are backing out; and commentators are questioning the future of the ‘sport’. Importantly, thousands of animals will be spared from the terror of being used as ‘live bait’. But there’s still much to do.

Please keep your voices loud, for the animals.

GREAT BRITAIN – Dark side of Greyhound Racing Investigation by BBC Panorama full Documentary 2014

Published on 4 Nov 2014

Panorama –
03/11/2014
The integrity of greyhound racing has been called into question by a Panorama investigation which has exposed blatant cheating and the drugging of dogs at the heart of the sport.
The undercover investigation caught a trainer revealing how he dopes greyhounds in order to effect betting coups – some of which he claims to have paid out up to £150,000.
The programme’s findings have prompted animal welfare campaigners to call for the government to reconsider the sport’s self-regulatory status.

Abattoir Turkey Workers Sacked Over Animal Cruelty: Company To Bow To Animal Rights & Install CCTV

Comments Off on Abattoir Turkey Workers Sacked Over Animal Cruelty: Company To Bow To Animal Rights & Install CCTV

“YES…Now that’s what you call a victory! I actually admire this company for immediately sacking those responsible & even more so; for bowing to Animal Rights pressure & having CCTV installed.”

“People…this sort of abuse goes on in many slaughter-houses, but those companies don’t want us, their CUSTOMERS, to know about it, which is why they are shitting their pants & want Ag-Gag bills to be introduced, to PROTECT THEM; WHY? Why should they be protected & thus allowed to carry on abusing animals??”

“DON’T WE the public have a right to know what happens behind slaughter-house doors?? YES! But if I went undercover to film animal abuse, I would then be CLASSED AS A TERRORISTS…who when caught would be treated like terrorists & face serious jail time!!”

“WHAT THE HELL DOES TAKING A VIDEO OR GOING UNDERCOVER TO EXPOSE ANIMAL ABUSE HAVE TO DO WITH TERRORISM? The only thing that remotely links us to the word “Terrorists” in any Dictionary is;” being part of a group” I’m no more of a terrorist than I am a duck!!”

Five workers at an abattoir in Sydney’s south-west have been sacked over animal cruelty captured in a video that emerged this week.

Company will bow to AR & install CCTV to stop further abuse going unseen

Inghams, which runs the Tahmoor abattoir, where the abuse footage was covertly filmed, confirmed on Friday night that it had sacked five employees involved in animal abuse.

“Inghams does not tolerate the mistreatment of our livestock,” company CEO Kevin McBain said in a statement. “A full investigation of the incident at Tahmoor processing plant is ongoing.”

He also confirmed that the company would bow to calls from animal rights groups to install CCTV cameras in the “live bird handling areas” of its abattoirs to guard against future abuse.

Animal Liberation – an animal rights groupreleased footage, recorded covertly at the Tahmoor plant over a two-week period in February, that showed turkeys being bashed, kicked and stomped.

The group said 140 hours of footage was handed anonymously to the animal rights group several days ago.

It was unclear whether a worker was responsible for placing the hidden camera inside the abattoir, according to Animal Liberation spokeswoman, Emma Hurst.

Ms Hurst said she had identified in the footage 136 instances of animal cruelty and aggravated animal cruelty – which was classified as cruelty that was so bad it led to the animal’s death, or injuries so severe it would be cruel to keep the animal alive.

You can see a total disrespect of these animals. There are scenes where they’ve put the music up very, very loud, the workers are screaming, jumping about, dancing, picking up the turkeys, dancing while holding onto the turkeys, throwing them onto the shackles, and just that whole mentality as though these animals don’t have feelings, that they’re objects.”

Ms Hurst said the footage had been handed to the NSW Police Assistant Commissioner for Rural Crime, and to rural crime detectives in Campsie.

One veterinarian asked to review the footage and prepare a report for the animal rights group told ABC’s Lateline that it was “among the worst [cases of animal cruelty] I’ve ever seen”.

Sea Shepherd Calls for Immediate Action Against Cruel Butchery and Illegal Trade of Dugong and Sea Turtles

Comments Off on Sea Shepherd Calls for Immediate Action Against Cruel Butchery and Illegal Trade of Dugong and Sea Turtles

Since 2009, Colin Riddell and Bob Irwin of  “Save Australian Dugongs and Turtles” have been at the forefront trying to save Australia‘s fast disappearing turtles and dugongs. What they have uncovered with the help of former Sea Shepherd volunteer Rupert Imhoff, is compelling evidence of the cruel butchery and illegal trade of endangered dugongs and turtles in Queensland.

They have obtained shocking footage of the live slaughter of vulnerable dugongs and endangered green sea turtles, with some animals taking days to die. Endangered green sea turtles are being tied up, flipped onto their backs and left to suffer a painful death. Some are even being hacked at while still alive, with some taking over 7 minutes to die. The full expose can be seen here with a warning; this story contains distressing footage.

Community leaders admit that the primarily indigenous trade of dugong and sea turtle meat and products uses native title rights as its cover.  The trade in endangered green turtles and dugongs has now become a black market industry.
