Animal welfare and governance issues associated with the greyhound racing industry exposed

27th June 2019

The ISPCA would like to thank RTÉ for exposing the animal welfare and governance issues associated with the greyhound racing industry in Ireland.

The special documentary that aired last night, Wednesday 26th June 2019, raised many questions which have been previously highlighted by the ISPCA over a number of years.

Undercover filming by RTÉ revealed numerous failings on the part of the bodies tasked with regulating greyhound racing and coursing.

The ISPCA is calling on the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine to urgently examine the animal welfare and export issues linked with the greyhound industry, and to review the allocation of funding, given the governance issues highlighted.
