Four Corners - Greyhounds

Have just watched the four corners episode of the live bating during the Grey Hound training...

I guess through naivety I had dismissed the cruelty to the dogs and had never thought much more about it...

If they treat the bait like they do I can only imagine what they do to the dogs that aren't at the top of their game...

I wont place another bet on the dogs after seeing what actually takes place...

Fucking disgusting!!

Speak with your feet fella's....

for sure I'm in favour of reporting that exposes organised crime.

my main point though was

the program exposes that this is happening on a very regular basis on multiple properties across multiple states and involves many of the highest profile trainers, owners and biggest winners in those states. Racing Victoria's "trainers of the year" presidents of racings associations Etc etc etc....

 Rabbits and pigs as well..how many rabbits are torn apart every night across Australia by foxes and f*cking cats..100s of thousands I might suggest along with all the other wildlife out there.

I just dont like the cheating. No wonder I cant beat the Tab. Haha.

A pretty good point here...it's probably quicker than a death than one that involves Calicivirus.

Point of fact though they were also using native wildlife.

Got to go now catch some more livebaits for the snapper !

Tue, 2015-02-17 20:58

I have a good mate that is a trainer in WA I know he would never never do that shit as he is an animal lover , when his dogs get retired he dosent send them to Murdock Vet hospital like most trainers he asks his mates to take them on as pets , I actually asked him if he did it and he said "no mate couldn't stomach that shit I would throw up","my dogs win on their own with out that shit"
Having said that the dog that won last years Perth cup was trained and brought over here for the from victoria , he was identified on the show , personaly think he should be stripped of the title and made to hand back the price money and banned from all types of racing (think Fine Cotton ring in)

Mon, 2015-02-16 22:38

When the report clearly shows some (a lot) of the biggest names in the grey hound industry carrying out unlawful acts to cheat what faith can you have in the industry as a whole.
In one of the local news paper down here there was a report on one of the prominent trainers being done for giving the dogs a "little something" to perk them up a bit.

When the CEO of grey hounds Australia sits in front of a camera on national tv and spews out such verbal human waste then you know that the industry is rotten from the very top to the bottom.

The next time people think about putting money on the dogs, just stop and think for a minute, is the dog I have put money on "getting a fair crack of the whip".

I think not, and lets not try and soften the issue by saying the same thing is happening in nature and it is quite ok. You only make yourself look like you are only one step away from the cave.

I worked for a greyhound

Tue, 2015-02-17 02:28

I worked for a greyhound trainer for 4 years and used to have part ownership in some dogs. I wish four corners showed more of what really happens behind the scenes in the racing industry. It's horrible. Live baiting does happen here. I know of some wa trainers who do it and use substances. A lot of them get caught and get banned for a couple years and fined but there are also the ones that don't get caught. The trainer i worked for got asked if we wanted a rabbit to practice with.. We said yes but only so we could keep it as a pet before other trainers got to it. We never used substances or blood training. We did get dogs sent from over East that were blood trained though  

i had part ownership of a greyhound who got sent to Northam to get broken in. There were always rumours of how they mistreated dogs. The trainers who did the breaking in were mean people. If the dogs they owned weren't good enough or didn't learn how to chase, they lined up, shot them and put them in a hole. Or starved them. Or hit them over the head with a shovel. Or poisoned them. Or drowned them. The list goes on. The dog I was getting broken in ended up escaping the breakers. They ended up getting her back and when we picked her up she was really timid. She didn't like people at all. She would just hide and cower away. Shes my pet now. With another greyhound I've adopted. I'm totally against greyhound racing now. Seeing behind the scenes like I have there's no way I could ever be for it. I used to be one of those people that walked the dogs to the boxes before the race, if they fell down and broke a leg I was the one who had to take them into the vet room and watch them get put down. Very very rarely do they get a second chance. It takes 6 months+ for a broken hock to heal which is the most common injury. Most trrainers don't have the time or money to put into those dogs so they just get them put down. Some of them were the sweetest dogs. Even wagging their tail as the needle went in. I've had to carry dogs off the track with broken backs, legs, smashed in faces, you name it. It really is such a sad and disgusting sport. 

I foster and re home greyhounds now.

Totally agree Channy

Tue, 2015-02-17 11:15

My first husband and I lived in Victoria.  We went to see a friends grey hound being trained for the track. To my disgust we saw rabbits, chooks and before we came apparently live cats tied to the lure.  My god I went crazy, yelling, screaming that I was going to contact the RSCPA, my first husband just about grabbed me kicking and screaming to the car. I saw a mother and daughter both looking over a rabbit that their dog was killing, both saying "go boy thats a good boy." You can image the  verbal disgust that came out of my mouth, while being dragged back to the car kicking, screaming and crying. In that same week end it was on the TV news that the RSPCA had found 20 dumped dead grey hounds with their ears cut off, skinned and paws at the local tip.  This was 40yrs ago and the image is still in my brain hearing that rabbit scream as it ws being ripped apart.

I'm all for shooting to kill for food, good clean shot that kills the animal instantly, fishing, my late husband would after bringing the fish on board,  kill the fish instantly shishemi  it, kill instantly, also cut its throat, then take out the hook.

Unfortunatelythe same can be said of the horse racing industry.  I could write a lot about the horse racing industry but I won't.

Due we ban dog and horse racing, No, but their needs to be better regulations, officials checking etc  Unfortunately that costs money, so the above will continue for the next 40yrs or so. Just look how the authoritieis try to stop dog or cock fights, never truly stamp these cruel practices out as they are mobile.

the difference being that

Sat, 2015-05-02 00:39

the difference being that fish naturally eat other live fish, all we do is act as the middle man, we catch the smaller fish first and return them to the water for bigger fish, so we get to eat...perks of being at the top of the food chain.

95% of dogs now are bred to be domesticated animals, this includes greyhounds, they shouldnt be taunted with live rabbits/pigs/chickens or whatever. fair enough, once in a blue moon a domesticated dog may get a hold of one of these animals, but they arent trained to do it. cattle dogs arent trained to bite cows/sheep. hunting dogs arent trained to eat what they catch.

the big difference here is that the trainers are taking it upon themselves to carry out acts of animal cruelty. NOT ON!

Common practice

Tue, 2015-02-17 07:13

Live baiting greyhounds is a common practice here as well as over east and its no surprise that some greenies have placed cameras at trainers properties to record it.

Ask any trainer what is going to happen to a slow or old dog and you will get a reply that it will be racing at "Angel Park" on Friday night, in other words pushing up flowers in the back yard.

years back I had a couple of whippets what did I use them for , catching bloody rabbits that we ate . the truth is the wa greyhound racing is so policed I couldn't see it happening over here , the dogs have to be within 100 grams of there last racing weight to start so it is monitored pretty hard , I know my mate down south that is a trainer has had lots of surprise visits from the greyhound racing association and good on them for doing it, went to the whippets after getting sick of digging my ferrets out of rabbit warrens

So you don't have a problem with it Gyprock & dodgy?

How you get your name dodgy?

If you watched the program and you don't have a problem with animals being restrained and repeatedly ripped apart until death then I question your mental state.

I hope you don't own any animals.

Carnarvon I don't know why people need to be labelled greenies in light of exposing this?

Praise to their good work.

If bad practise by abattoirs can shut down a live export trade in a country that it means so much then I hope this also goes that far. Fuck It, its only entertainment.

Thanks for telling your story Channy and good on your good deeds.

As mentioned above its a money game, and if people like Hird et al can dope young footballers, for sure "dodgy" (no pun intended mate) characters will do things to animals cruely to get the edge. Suxs dogs balls (pun intended) IMO.

While the indifferent

Tue, 2015-02-17 08:13

While the indifferent attitudes by the owners/trainers to the obvious cruelty was very worrying to say the least, the real story was the one they only just touched upon. that being the fact that a "couple of greenies" could expose what the appointed racing association could not.

Either the racing association have to admit that they are a bunch of completely ineffectual Muppets who cant do their job and should be sacked.......or the racing association is involved. Wether involvement means "turning a blind eye" or something more sinister, at this point who knows. I know which side I would bet my money !!!

Good on these guys for being active and bring this corruption out ! I'll be watching with great interest on outcomes here.

Tue, 2015-02-17 08:21

 ...alcohol and tobacco, which cause death and destruction among humans, why would they ban gambling, which "only" causes death and destruction among animals?

Look, it's (supposedly) a free country and this greyhound baiting thing is an horrific practice and needs to be pointed out. Good on the TV show for doing that, and good on you, Timboon for rightfully being upset about it. But knowing how people like to spend their money, and knowing how the powers-that-be like to take it from them, I think it's just wishful thinking that anything could possibly be done about it.

As Timboon states the same activist pretty well shut down the live export trade.

I agree of course the govt wont step in and shut it down but when a "billion dollar industry" starts loosing profits the industry is in for a big shakeup.

Live exports

Tue, 2015-02-17 15:10

I am all for shutting down the live export trade, as an ex slaughterman from the seventies when al meat processing was done in Australia and frozen cartons or chilled meat was exported. Then some greedy barsteward found he could make more money by sending the whole live animal overseas for someone else to do the work and not have all the overheads involved with running an abattoir, boning rooms and by products cooker. Thousands of meatworkers were sacked and abattoirs like Wyndham, Derby, Broome, Katherine [NT] shut down.

As for live baiting greyhounds, where in my previous statement does it say that I am all for it? All I said is that it is common practice and any slow dog ends up in a hole in the ground. Of course I don't approve of it but that has nothing to do with it.

Seems strange but no one has been caught live baiting in WA for over 8 years, does that mean no one is doing it or that no one is looking for those that are doing it, the latter I think is more likely.

Hey buddy ....not sure if this is at me but honestly didn't mean offence at the "greenies" comment ....my point was just that this small and independent group was able to easily obtain hours and hours of illegal offences across the country and to me that it is very suspicious that the governing body in this industry (w)(c)ould (please insert which letter you feel appropriate)not do this! I think(but could be wrong here) they stated that they had 20 full time officers and stewards in the industry just in one state.

 You'd have to be pretty naive to think this kind of stuff didn't happen tho. It's a bit like kony 2012, everybody knows there's bad people doing bad shit all over the place, but are quite content to pretend it doesn't happen. Then somebody films an expose that goes viral on YouTube and suddenly, everybody goes "ERMAGAWD!!! The government must stop this".  then six weeks later a new expose pops up on you tube and everybody goes back to betting on the dogs like as if nothing has happened.

I believe the live export of cattle is alive and well and will never be stopped, nothing wrong it on the new ships now days!  this will give the industry a shake up but by no means will ever stop what's happening at different training properties. 

Didnt see the report, don't care to much for ferrel rabbits either but this is pretty wrong.....Hard to know which dog to bet on?

just for clarity here the report showed all sorts of animals being used including native possums. (one particular one with a baby in it's pouch.....the baby was removed and the guys (trainers) saying on camera smash it's (baby native possum') head into the sand. this was done, then the native possum (mum) was then literally torn in two by the dogs.

so like I said ...for clarity we are not just talking about a couple of feral rabbits.

Wow havn't seen a thread like this for years --- Where's Tony!

Tue, 2015-02-17 17:52

But seriously, I used to trap possums in NZ when I was about 8 or 9, used those closing jaw traps. Used to catch them and club them over the head and collect the bounty. One morning before school I checked the traps and there was a possum that had been caught by the nose. It had ripped its nose back to exposed scull, I never trapped possums after that. I used to go deer stalking, we made our own soft nose bullets by cutting back military ammo.
Anyway I was waiting at this feeding spot and sure enough a beautiful deer came on the scene. I shot the deer and blew its neck apart. must have cut a bit too much copper off the bullet. never went deer stalking again.
I really don't know what is right or wrong, cats will torcher there catch for hours. But we are human and with our intelligence should know better, yet we are the worst offenders.
It makes me feel very sorry for us all.

it will only be a matter of time before WA is bought under the spot light. You would also be very surprised which high profile people who are into dogs / betting knows how these things work. It's a known but kept quiet process here in WA

 Firstly I do not condone this practice.

Can someone explain clearly how this is different to putting a hook through the back of a fish and sinking it to the depths for a bigger fish to rip apart?

Is it because the bait fish is out of sight and you cant hear it? Is it because that is what every one on here considers normal because they have always done it?

What makes us the decision makers on which animals are ok to use as live baits and which ones are not?

 Missed the point completely mate. What we do when we (I) fish is done humanely and swiftly. Not for the gain and greed of these wankers who have no conscience by having animals that cannot fight back and protect themselves mauled by their dogs. You cannot compare fishing with this barbaric behaviour.

Nuthin' Fancy is a 1975 album by Lynyrd Skynyrd, their third studio album, and their first to reach the Top 10, peaking at #9 on the US albums chart. It was certified Gold on 6/27/1975 and Platinum on 7/21/1987 by the RIAA. This is the first record with new drummer Artimus Pyle and the last with guitarist Ed King until the reformation of Lynyrd Skynyrd and the release of Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991.

No I haven't seen the report BUT I dont agree with torturing animals either.

The thing thats piqued my interest is you labelling people who dont agree with you as fuckwits. Poor form timboon.

Dear channy

Tue, 2015-02-17 20:36

 You said..I worked for a greyhound trainer for 4 years and used to have part ownership in some dogs. I wish four corners showed more of what really happens behind the scenes in the racing industry. It's horrible. Live baiting does happen here. 

So you being involved for 4 years and knowing what went on.. doesn't that sort of implicate you in what when on.. as you failed to protect the dogs from this unlawful practice makes your post look a little silly. IMO you could have let the powers of the day know what was going on and maybe saved a few greyhounds pigs and rabbits.

Things like this are the tip of the iceberg for tossers like that nobody green pr*ck wilkie who would have us all stop fishing in a flash if he could. A handful of voters got him in and he is always airing his views on that freeloading abc.  No one else is interested in what he has to say.

Nobody likes cruelty in any form but it goes on everywhere and yes the greenies and wilkies of this world say fish have feelings to. Don't tell me you don't have just a little pity for the livies you sink the hooks into and the crabs and crays you have thrown in the pot to boil alive..yep nasty shit that and what about those magnifcent fish like old blue groper who follow us around under water trusting us no to kill them... then bang, spear through the back.

Why would some people feel sorry for pest animals being killed by dogs but then ignore what they do as they go about killing things themseles.

The hyrocrisy of those that shoot the shit out of animals and then bitch about a few others that also kill. Oh thats right its done humanely..FFS let go of it before it falls off Haha.

I'm saying before you shoot your mouths off stop and think about what you do out there going about your everyday lives. I for the record hunt and kill animals fish crabs crays like a lot of us but I dont knock others for doing the same.

And here is some food for thought..today same as every day..over 20,000 children under the age of 4 died from starvation also many thousands more from preventable diseases that we could have stopped. Yep every day and you lot are bitching about a few rabbits on a greyhound lure.

 Me saying anything about it

Tue, 2015-02-17 21:37

 Me saying anything about it would not have stopped a single thing. I would have just lost my job and everything would continue as normal. Also I did what I could for the dogs of the trainer I worked with. She had 40+ dogs and each day of the week I would take a group of them for walks to get them out of their kennels. I also bought them toys and treats with my own money to keep them entertained in their kennels which is were they spend most of their lives. I would stay back and take time to play with them too. And if trainers talked to me saying they were going to get a dog put down i would do my best to find a foster carer or spare kennel where I worked for it stay. 

 

Plus I don't use livies or sink my hook into crabs for bait. I don't catch to kill. I don't even like sea food. I don't use bait full stop. 

Also those 20,000 kids that die from starvation a day.. That's just nature. Happens in the wild too when something doesn't get enough to eat or gets sick. The worlds too over populated anyway. The world would be a lot more balanced if there weren't a billion pills and treatments to prolong lives etc. just my 2 cents.

That's the picture most of us had of you before your essay...

Tosser...

BIG John, its actually pretty scary that people can have any other opinion than one of disgust of what went on in last nights program...

You have laid your cards on the table mate...

Disrespect to you!!!

It is kinda funny though how you try and drag other shit into your argument to sit you higher on your soap box, we can all see through it mate...

Those I've labelled a fuckwit I stand by my words, I'd sit through a repeat of the program last night and be fascinated by the reactions of those that are trying to compare it to anything other than the brutality it was...

Perhaps its my nature to barrack for the underdog.

"The James Hird loving High Horse Rider has ridden into town. Should we bow?"

Bow, beat your chest do what ever you choose mate...
My original post was simply sticking up for animals being brutally torured then slaughtered and asking people to instead of having a beer and a flutter vote with their feet and avoid showing support to what was displayed in last nights doco...

If your happy to condone this behaviour well your call, I wont be...

Timboon, without saying which of the fence I sit on top of, Ive got to say that you'd do better to take a step back, and take a deep breath then reassess how to present your stance.

This is looking more and more like Til's last post here

 You obviously love rabbits and pigs cause most of us don't give a shit if the dogs are having a bit of fun with them. The principles of baiting are fairly low but hey what right have I got to slip into them when I am far from perfect.

 Like you mate I somtimes kill things [with a gun that would shoot the arse of your more than likely splatter gun] so who am I to judge.

 Must add I never kill anything for no reason oh except for the animals you are passionate about that is foxes cats pigs and rabbits... sorry mate yes I kill rabbits your beloved rabbits. Like the dogs I like eating them Haha

Dogs having a bit of fun? Yeah fair call in a paddock or down a burrow but not a possum/pig or rabbit strapped to a pole with no chance....

Is that sport is it? Is that your sort of thing is it?

I don't care what you hunt, if you do it humanely with purpose I respect that...

I remember going rabbit trapping with my headmaster and class in year 5 back in SA, that's how things were back then... Now, traps are banned, why??

Coz they cruel as F**K, do I trap rabbits now, shit no, cruelas f**k... Do I shoot rabbits, you betcha...

I hunt humanely with purpose...

I'm looking for a word....

Tue, 2015-02-17 22:40

Arh yes I have found the word, integrity that's the word I'v been looking for. When people such as sports administrators, trainers, stewards, or umpires are put in positions where the public believe that they will ensure that the sport is carried out within the laid down rules for that sport and the laws of the land.
We have a right to demand and in fact expect the people to have high morals and integrity. When these people act in such blatantly dis honest unlawful ways they all do the community a grave dis service and put a black greasy stain on the record of that particular sport. All those involved with the sport suffer from the acts these people in whom we put our trust have behaved.

It will be very interesting to see just how heavy and how high the axe is wielded to get rid of the criminals.

The excuse of I didn't know what was going on just doesn't cut it, if you where put in the position of ensuring that the sport was conducted within the rules/laws then you are responsible. For if you didn't know then you should have known because it was your job to find out what was going on under your watch.

It is interesting to see that Lance Armstrong is now being sued by various sponsors for 12 odd mil for being a cheat and making false statements, all one can do is hope that those authorities with the power, strip those found guilty of cheating lying and generally behaving like the low down criminals they are of all monies trophies that they have won and confiscate there assets under the proceeds of crime act.
Then ban them for life from being involved in any way in any sport.

For justice to be done it must be seen to be done, none of this behind closed doors or in camera crap.

To finish on a note related to fishing, I ask all those who have raised the question of sticking hooks into fish for live baiting to read up on the studies that have been carried out on the pain receptors of fish as against warm blooded creatures.
Do fish feel pain the results (from what I have read) are inconclusive, however they are most certainly different from warm blooded animals.

 Good luck in your endeavor to stop this unlawful practice but i can tell ya it ain't gunna happen.

Everyone is into it over there the stewards and all.. not so much here. This is why the Eastern State dogs always beat ours. 

This industry is to big for it to shut down. Just no chance of that. A few lines of B/S to the media..a few suspensions, go to ground for a while then the power of the $ will be to much to resist. 

People will once again look the other way. 

Then it will be bring our ya rabbits.. bring out ya rabbits and pigs posums and cats too Haha.

Needs an outside body to [ watch them ] like that usless RSPCA. What a waiste of tax payer dollars they are. Basicly sit on there arses non stop and now and then book someone for under feeding something.

P.s I think you were very rude to our long time friend of all the Fishwrecked member BJ.... I might of asked for some backlash all ok but BJ has never causes shit that I know off..you owe him an apology imo.

 

Just because he supports Collingwood doesn't give you the right to kick him in the nuts Haha
