Australian Greens Senator for NSW and Animal Welfare spokesperson Dr Mehreen Faruqi has said that all greyhound and horse racing should cease immediately in Australia.
Senator Faruqi said:
“It’s galling that greyhound and horse racing is allowed to continue in this public health crisis.
“Organised sports, cinemas, restaurants and shops are shutting down but the government is turning a blind eye to these cruel industries.
“We need an immediate moratorium on racing. Animal cruelty is not an essential service.
