Viva Delspec, a 7yo bay gelding (male) was put down after suffering a knee injury at Warrnambool yesterday at only the second race of the 2014 Victorian Jumps Racing season which runs until 28 September.
Victorian Greens Animal Welfare spokesperson Sue Pennicuik MLC said she is dismayed that yet another horse has been killed in a jumps race and is calling again on the government to ban this cruel and barbaric ‘sport.’
Colleen Hartland has again called for documents that show details of costings of the Greens proposed legislation that automatically provides WorkCover compensation to firefighters that contract cancer on the job. This information is crucial for testing whether cost claims are inflated by the government. The government again refused to provide the documents or the details required to interrogate their costings. What have they got to hide?
