Motion: Greyhound Racing Ban

Motion
Mehreen Faruqi 17 Jun 2020

I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

   (i) more than 100 greyhounds have been killed at racing tracks across Australia so far this year,

   (ii) more than 3,000 injuries have been suffered by greyhounds at racing tracks across Australia so far this year, and

   (iii) unlike other sports, greyhound and horse racing was allowed to continue during COVID-19 in all states and territories where it usually operates, with the exception of Tasmania;

(b) recognises that greyhound racing is an inherently dangerous and cruel 'sport'; and

(c) calls for a national ban on greyhound racing.
