    You can tailor a story about an evil slaughter house to anger the left or the right with a single use of the word “halal”

    My dad used to work as a part time photographer and full time punter at Randwick back in the day, and almost everyone who worked in the industry was either a blood relative to or being f**ked in some way by the Waterhouse family

    Yep.

    As I stated two years ago in this thread, I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it if they banned the sport.

    Aside from animal cruelty issues, it’s also another revenue source for the gaming industry.

    I’d be completely distraught if anything happened to the gaming industry, It would be as big a tragedy as the tobacco industry going belly up.

    There are existing laws against animal cruelty. Shouldn't ban something because we couldn't be arsed enforcing the laws we have.

    We could just link this thread back to the start - it's been done to death from all sides.

    I will point this out one more time.

    Banning a animal sport will see the decimation of the breeds.

    These new-age & animal right dicks don't realize the ultimate effect of such a call - ban greyhounds, ban harness racing, ban thoroughbreds, guess what.

    Greyhounds, Standard & thoroughbreds horse breeds will become a thing of history.

    Not everyone is going to have a greyhound as their pet dog running alongside you whilst you sit in a sulky being pulled by your pet standard or thoroughbred heading to the corner shop for a litre of milk. Of course, no whip usage.

    They just don't see the final result of their whinging.

    I have personally seen the simple act of no docking of tails of certain dog breeds destroy those breeds. People just don't want boxers and/or pembroke corgis with tails.

    There are laws in place for cruelty, enforce them; add to them - jail the pricks who could treat an animal in such a manner. But think before you gaybees yell ban.

    And before you GIRLZ scream about docking of a dog's tail at around 1 or 2 weeks as cruelty, it is about the same as male baby being circumscribed.

    I never knew I was supposed to have a foreskin, and I didn't need a safe corner due to the doctor.

    Its great having an oversupply of a short term single purpose animal. They make good fertiliser.

    How do you know that the latest story of cruelty and starvation is about oversupply?

    ha. I'm sure the 12 malnourished diseased dogs were well loved dogs and definitely not ones that were no good at racing anymore.

    Who gives a shite if purpose built breeds are eradicated/ decimated in the long term?You sound like one of the new age, animal loving girlz.

    What's it matter if the breed dies out?

    A breed bred entirely for one specific human purpose, big deal.

    That is not over supply, it is out & out cruelty.

    As for who gives a shit, I do. They are beautiful animals.

    Unbelievable, ban racing but I don't really give a shit about the breed of the dog - that is your take.

    Than why worry about the whole situation, if you don't give a shit.

    Same argument for every breed. Most dogs are bred for personal entertainment of one sort or another and the rspca kills these dogs in numbers no other organisation comes close to.

    You think it's no big deal?

    Funny these guys don't gives a shit about the breed but they demand it is banish because some dude is f**king cruel to the animals they don't care about - make sense of that.

    They must just hate life - non-gambling, non-smoking, gin & tab kind of guys.

    Just misery guts, hating the world except for terrorists supported arabs.

    Why not conflate one argument with another mate, and see how silly you look?

    Why does the RSPCA kill so many mate? And why would you think the reasons behind that are any kind of rebuttal of what I posted.

    If the breed dies out because no one wants to breed them, that's a helluva long way from a shitload of dogs being put down because there are too many of them not fit for purpose.

    Please, your "I can not admit I'm wrong" personality is rising to the top again.

    Is it cruel to animals not to breed them?

    Or is it cruel to over breed them and put a shit load of them down because they are not fit for purpose?

    No, your failure to understand simple concepts precludes you from meaningful discussion.
