Today, justice has been served.
The first court cases resulting from our ground-breaking investigations into live baiting in the greyhound industry have concluded with three trainers sentenced to prison for serious animal cruelty. Two will spend time behind bars, while the third was given a suspended sentence.
Crucially, all three men were also banned from having contact with animals for 20 years.
Investigations across three states implicated more than 70 individuals, with prosecutions still pending. This first decision is a strong signal that animal cruelty will not be tolerated — not by the community, not by the police, and not by the courts.
