Why? I can't stand cruelty to animals, and these industries are cruel in nature. I can live with those who do the right things, even though the right things are still cruel to the animal. Those whose heart is in the right place (however few) are ok with me. But these kvunts aren't that. Fk em, and everyone who looks like em. I have no fkn clue how you can do that to a defenceless animal. Burying a possum in the sand with the mother watching before she gets ripped to shreds is psychotic behaviour. Hope they suffer for it.

now that's a more balanced statement Rhino
balance just for the sake of balance, is bias.

BJ, there is a massive difference between killing for food (or protecting a food source) and killing for the sake of your dog winning a race. Throw in the manner in which it occurred and yes, it is a big deal. There is no defending this.
No, my point is rabbits are killed because they are a pest. Foxes too. Kangaroos. etc etc etc.
What is the difference between killing a rabbit to train greyhounds and simply killing it? Of course I am referring to killing it before being mauled, not letting it get hurled around for an hour with 30 dogs on it. If it is no longer live bait, then is that ok in regards to the law of racing?
Most of those guys for the record are old enough, if growing up in the country would have known how to skin a rabbit before they knew how to ride a bike.

I don't think it did, but ok.

BJ a pest is something that attacks our food source or hinders us in some other way. Pest control is about maintaining our quality of life. There is a stark difference between pest control and this. Obviously killing the animals before putting them on a lure would be better, but how does that help the dog race? or better than a toy rabbit? And you still have the moral quagmire of killing innocent animals for the sake of the racing industry, which is not and won't ever be public friend number 1. I also think you are more than smart enough to grasp all of this mate...
I understand what a pest is. But thanks.
Take the rabbit. You are happy it is killed, as it is a pest. What is acceptable to do with them once they are killed? When we released, accidentally mind you, the calicvirus, and killed 10 million rabbits in 8 weeks, did you go to the trouble of giving any of them a funeral? Did you do anything but let them rot where they finally died from the poison we gave them?
What the hell do you care if a greyhound plays with a rabbit caucus?
I have said that the way they went about it is wrong. But all the animals aren't "innocent" animals killed for the purpose of greyhound racing. Rabbits, will be killed regardless as we see them as a pest and have been trying to kill as many as we possibly can for decades, and when one way loses it's effectiveness, we introduce another way. People have no issue with them rotting away in a paddock, but are gobsmacked that a dog bred to hunt and kill them, may enjoy having a little nibble?
