Fourteen greyhound trainers linked to live-baiting banned for life

Another 14 Queenslanders have been banned from greyhound racing for their involvement in the live-baiting scandal.

Queensland All Codes Racing Industry Board chairman Kevin Dixon said after considering the issued show cause notices, the board decided to ban the individuals because their conduct meant they were no longer welcome at Queensland racetracks.

Greyhounds that belong to them have been disqualified from competition and will be required to undertake three supervised trials in order to return to racing.

Those banned have been notified of the decision and their right to appeal.

Since ABC’s Four Corners program denounced the live-baiting scandal in February, a total of 20 trainers have been banned as a result of the ensuing investigation.
