Dogs, Ducks, and Dickheads

Sunday, 10 March 2024 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

 Our guest Kristy Alger from Animal Liberation Tasmania shares updates from their extensive campaign Defund TasRacing. ALT has released extensive videos and photos showing the reality of life for greyhounds on trainer, owner and breeder properties in Tasmania. The conditions that greyhounds are kept in, for often up to 23 hours a day are truly shocking. The campaign has had great impact including mass media coverage, and recongition from multiple politicians and with an upcoming state election is putting greyhounds firmly on the election agenda.

 We also talk about the duck shooting campaign in Tasmania which has just opened this weekend, and the low attendance yesterday at the primary public waterway at Moulting Lagoon. Finally, we chat about Kristy's writing and what she's working on now.
