City waits for greyhound decision

THE future of the proposed greyhound race track at Slacks Creek remains uncertain following the handing down of a report into the racing industry on Tuesday.

Cronulla Park remains on hold as the State Government reviews the MacSporran report into live baiting and animal cruelty.

But Logan City Councillors, including Deputy Mayor Russell Lutton who has been an outspoken advocate of the track, said they expect the project would be scrapped.

In Council this week Logan Mayor Pam Parker said she would be surprised if the track went ahead.

A spokesman for Racing Minister Bill Byrne said the Logan track was currently being reviewed.

"The Queensland Government takes the issue of animal welfare in the greyhound racing industry very seriously," he said.

"The new greyhound facility project at Logan was place on hold to allow the Commission of Inquiry to take place and to provide the Queensland Government full consideration of the report findings, prior to making a decision on the project.

"The Government will consider the proposed greyhound track at Logan in light of the report."
