30 October 2010: Greens say government's animal welfare policy falls well short. The government announces changes to puppy farm laws, yet refuses to ban the cruel practice. It also says nothing about jumps racing and duck shooting.
27 Nov 2009: Racing Victoria makes the right decision to end Jumps Racing in Victoria. Unfortunately it will take another year so more horses will die: Jumps racing hits the wall - The Age
Ten horses have died as a result of jumps racing events in Victoria during 2009. The death rate for horses in jumps racing is now 1 in 60 starters, and the fall rate is now 1 for every 14 horses that start a race. These are the worst figures on record in Victoria. It proves that the countless reviews and numerous safety mechanisms have failed dismally.
