Lara property raided by Greyhound Racing Victoria
RUMOUR CONFIRMED: A property near Geelong that’s believed to be connected to a disqualified greyhound trainer has been raided.
In The Doghouse told 3AW Breakfast greyhounds were scratched from a race meeting yesterday in Cranbourne as a result.
Greyhound Racing Victoria say they conducted a raid on a property at Lara yesterday after allegations of doping dogs with performance enhancing drugs.
Charlie Bezzina, senior investigations manager at Greyhound Racing Victoria, said it served as a warning to anybody doing the wrong thing.
‘The welfare of the dogs is paramount,’ he said.
He said while it was disappointing, it was a small minority in the industry and they would be ‘hit hard’.
