A greyhound trainer, Trevor Leonard Rice, has been found guilty of a heinous act where he brutally killed four racing greyhounds using a hammer. The incident took place in Leevile near Casino in Northern NSW. In response to this appalling act, the Greyhound Welfare and Integrity Commission imposed a $3250 fine on Rice and banned him from participating in racing for life. This penalty has stirred outrage among animal activists who deemed it too lenient for such a cruel offense.

During the proceedings, Chief Commissioner Brenton Taylor pointed out that Rice was vague and evasive, further deepening the severity of the case. Despite some industry participants vouching for Rice’s character by describing him as a good man, the commission stood firm on its decision. It is alarming to note that three other greyhounds were also found dead at Rice’s property, raising concerns about the treatment of these animals in the racing industry.

In response to this incident, animal activists have launched a petition online to condemn such acts of cruelty towards animals. The case of Trevor Leonard Rice sheds light on the darker side of the greyhound racing industry, where animals are sometimes viewed merely as commodities with little regard for their well-being. While no criminal charges were brought against Rice, this case serves as a stark reminder of the importance of upholding animal welfare standards and holding individuals accountable for their actions.
