The petition of the undersigned Citizens of Tasmania draws to the attention of the House:
- The inherent animal cruelty and suffering of greyhounds in the publicly-funded racing industry;
- That opposition to the cruelty in the greyhound racing industry cuts across politics, and that greyhounds are rescued and re-homed by Tasmanians of all political affiliation;
That it is opposed by the majority of taxpayers and by the RSPCA; and
- That as pet owners, we will use our purchasing power and influence to send a message to retailers, veterinary practitioners, pubs and all businesses supporting and enabling greyhound racing.
Petitioners therefore request that the House call on the government to end the taxpayer subsidy of the inherently cruel greyhound racing industry.
Christine A. Dorchak, Esq.
