Eight greyhounds have been euthanised since December 18 after sustaining racing accidents. This contains 5 in Whanganui at what animal rights organisation SAFE is asking a ‘loss of life observe’.
SAFE spokesperson Will Appelbe is asking on the Ministry for Major Industries (MPI) to right away shut the Whanganui observe for an investigation.
“Whereas Kiwis loved their unstoppable summer time, the greyhound loss of life toll has soared over the past three weeks,” mentioned Appelbe
“The 5 canines killed on the Whanganui racetrack is appalling and warrants an instantaneous investigation. The buck stops with MPI they usually should intervene.”
This surge in greyhound deaths is the most recent blow to the greyhound racing business, after it was discovered 47 canine deaths weren’t included within the business’s final annual report. Minister answerable for animal welfare Meka Whaitiri declined to touch upon the discrepancy.

“Greyhounds are the one canines New Zealand doesn’t appear to care about. However we care, and we count on extra from the animal welfare institution.”
“Greyhound racing is harmful, and these canines belong on somebody’s sofa, not the racetrack. A ban on greyhound racing is lengthy overdue.”
GREY2K USA Worldwide, the most important international greyhound advocacy organisation, has just lately joined SAFE and Greyhound Safety League’s marketing campaign to finish greyhound racing in New Zealand.
GREY2K President and Basic Counsel Christine A. Dorchak mentioned, “So long as canine racing continues, greyhounds will undergo and die. It’s time to shut down this merciless observe and each observe in New Zealand.”
