A dog is forever. Unless it is a racing greyhound.

In a very unusual decision, the NSW Government has decided to shut down the greyhound racing in NSW, after  receiving a critical report in mid-2016. Legislation has now passed the NSW Parliament. In this episode we talk to Dr Joanna Kyriakakis, at Monash University, about the recent changes in NSW, which now ban greyhound racing and related breeding and training.
