Australian Greens Animal Welfare spokesperson Senator Mehreen Faruqi has said that commercial horse racing is a cruel industry that cannot be trusted or fixed, following reports that retired racehorses continue to be slaughtered for pet food at knackeries in NSW.
Senator Mehreen Faruqi, Greens spokesperson for Animal Welfare, said:
“The gambling-fuelled racing industry cannot be trusted or fixed. It’s time is up. We have to shut it down.
