Five dogs have been killed at the Ipswich Showgrounds track this year. Three of those deaths were in just four days 20-23 March 2022:
- On Sunday 20 March, Special Bill was euthanised after suffering a broken leg. He was 3.5years old.
- On Monday 21 March, Tiger Shian was euthanised after suffering a 'serious leg injury'. He was only 1 year and 10months old.
- On Wednesday 23 March, Midnight Blue was euthanised after suffering a broken leg. He was 2.5 years old.
This follows the death of 'Final Assassin' on 8 March 2022, and most recently 'Catch Them Cutie' on 17 April 2022.
Greyhound racing should be immediately suspended at this track while a thorough investigation is undertaken.
