They don’t think they are the only sport in the firing line, adamant the animal welfare groups will now move on to horse racing, equestrian and other sports involving animals – although that was a claim RSPCA ACT denied.

The Canberra Greyhounds board met on Friday night and decided “unanimously” to fight the ban, which will come into effect mid next year, and they’ll join their NSW brothers at protests in Sydney this week.

They will meet again on Tuesday night after their sport was thrown into turmoil following the NSW government’s decision on Thursday to ban greyhound racing – a move that was quickly followed by the ACT.

Meetings with the government over the coming weeks will also be sought and their next meeting – on Sunday – will go ahead.

Canberra Greyhounds spokesperson Kel O’Rourke said they would lobby politicians and likened their fight to the movie, The Castle, where a family fights the demolition of their home in the Supreme Court.

“It was unanimously decided that we would fight it and we would fight it hard. We’re certainly not going to lay down and just cop it sweet,” he said on Saturday.

“It’s a little bit reminiscent  of the movie The Castle, when Michael Caton got up in court and said, ‘This is not a house it’s a home’ and the correlation is this is people’s livelihoods … we’ll go straight to a [Queen’s counsel].”

Mr O’Rourke said other sports involving animals would be next in the firing line.

Jumps racing is constantly under threat due to the number of horse deaths, while thoroughbred racing has also been in the firing line for the use of whips and some high-profile deaths at the Melbourne Cup.

“The harness industry should be worried, the racing industry should be worried, campdrafting, equestrian, showjumping … they should be worried about the ramifications of these welfare animal groups and the RSPCA because they just want to shut everything down,” Mr O’Rourke said.

But RSPCA ACT chief executive Tammy Ven Dange​ said that wasn’t the case and greyhounds had been their only target.

She said there were “fundamental differences” between greyhound racing and other sports involving animals.

Ms Ven Dange felt it was an “easy scare tactic” to lump all animal sports in together.

“Greyhounds are different … there are fundamental differences between dog racing and any of the horse racing activities out there,” she said.

“I’ve never heard of a horse involved in live-baiting … [and] you don’t hear about horses having a litter of 13 foals at any given time.”

Ms Ven Dange admitted it was going to be tough to re-home all the dogs from NSW and the ACT – there’s believed to be more than 6000 in NSW alone – and that some of them would be killed.

But she was thankful they were the only two provinces where bans had been introduced, allowing an Australia-wide effort to find new homes.

“This is a community problem that we’re going to have to deal with together, beyond the boundaries of the states and territories … to try to save as many dogs as we can,” Ms Ven Dange said.
