Hi Mr O I’m anwsering your questions.

4.australia is one of the only 8 countries in the world where greyhound racing still happens.
2.The ABC report found that some greyhounds were put down because they weren’t aloud to compete and small animals were used as live bait to train them.
10. I think it should be banned because they only race them to get money and gamble on the Grayhounds.
3. The state that has banned Grayhounds racing is the New South Wales.
9. Michaela think Grayhounds are good pets because they are playful, don’t need much exercise and they are calm.

In my opinion I’m against Grayhound racing.

To Mr O’Toole,
1)I think the main point is that they want to ban greyhound racing because people are being cruel to the animals. And if they don’t get into the race they get put down.
2)In the greyhound industry find was a $billion industry including 300,000 speedy dogs.
3)NSW ( New South Whales) are going to ban the greyhound racing starting in July next year.
4)Australia is only one of eight countries who still do the greyhound racing.
5)Some people want greyhound racing banned because the trainers are being cruel to the dogs if they are not fast enough.
6)Jacinta’s involvement in the greyhound racing is because her dad is part of a greyhound training and she is going to do that when she’s older.
7)Jacinta is against the industry because she thinks that they should be cared for.
8)All the greyhounds will need to find new homes if the greyhound racing get banned.
9)Michaela thinks greyhounds are great pets because they are cuddly and don’t need much exercise and they are also sweet.
10)I think greyhound racing should be banned from those who were cruel to those greyhounds. Because if you ban it from those who did nothing they lose their job from something they love and didn’t do.

5. Some people want greyhound racing banned because some trainers are bad to the greyhounds.

10. I think greyhound racing should not be banned because a lot of people enjoy watching them and it is good fun and excercise for the greyhounds. I know people have been bad to them but if they don’t want it to nearly be illegal again, they won’t do it and plus, most of the trainers are good to the greyhounds.

Those are the questions I’ve done.

Great topic to research about Mr. O’toole. Some wonderful answers from the students. I also think they shouldn’t ban the industry just because some people are breaking the rules. Would be better if they worked together to improve the industry for the dogs and their owners.
