Australian greyhounds are being exported to appalling conditions across Asia where they face cruel treatment and the very real possibility of being raced to injury and death. The Australian Government continues to allow the export of racing greyhounds, creating a loophole for any owners and trainers wanting to ignore industry export rules.
The Government can end this
The Australian Government has the power to stop the suffering of future greyhounds by ending this export practice once and for all.
Exported to uncertain futures
Greyhounds exported to China, Macau, Hong Kong and Vietnam can face continual racing and grossly inadequate conditions and care.
Case Study: Macau
700 Australian greyhounds currently live at the Macau Canidrome where 20 to 30% of dogs are injured at any one time and on average 30 dogs are killed every month.
