The Project hosts have slammed the NSW Government’s decision to overturn its ban on the greyhound industry.
NSW Premier Mike Baird admitted he “got it wrong” in a media conference held to discuss the reversal, ABC reports.
Baird said the quick-move to ban the industry didn’t allow for the racing community to reform negative practices in order to cultivate a safer environment.
“We did not give the good people in the industry a chance to respond – a chance to reform,” he said.
The proposed move was announced in early July this year with a ban to roll out from 2017 onward.
Greyhound trainer Ken Burnett appeared on the show to discuss his hopes for the future of the industry.
"Hopefully with the new regulator who's coming on board, the Premier is giving us a chance to prove to NSW the regulator can improve the regulations," he said.
"Improve our industry to having zero tolerance to animal welfare, zero tolerance to live baiting and give us an opportunity to show the NSW Government and the public that we can prove we can do things right."
