The decision by the New South Wales state government to shut down its greyhound racing industry there as from July 1,2017 represents a massive failure of governance and compliance processes both externally and internally.

Of course there is no doubt that there are fundamentally bad people inside greyhound racing who care only for their own success – and perhaps far more the case in New South Wales than elsewhere.

But they seem matched by inept bureaucracies within both the governing body and its oversighting authority who have been unable, at least in Australia’s biggest state, to control and eliminate a swathe of appalling behaviours and practices.

The greyhound industry is arguably the ABC’s Four Corners program’s biggest scalp since it took down Joh Bjelke-Petersen’s state government in Queensland.

Like the Fitzgerald Inquiry, the recent McHugh investigation into NSW greyhound racing had royal commission-like powers.

But the response to the unearthing of massive wrong-doing is quite different. The state of Queensland was reformed. New South Wales greyhound racing is eliminated full-stop.

Whilst the ACT had little choice, given its geography, to follow the lead of NSW,no other state or the Northern Territory has done so.

In fact, at least in the case of Victoria the response is an emphatic statement of a different course, with its racing minister Martin Pakula already highlighting the steps it has taken to clean up the sport.

Either way this is a big decision – with the livelihoods ofmany Australians who work in the greyhound industry at risk.

But this is not the only factor. Greyhound racing in Australia in its current form was established to regulate myriad previously uncontrolled coursing activities, often involving live lures, all over the country. To ban it anywhere risks a return to just that.

A ban in just two jurisdictions surely opens the door to its practitioners,both good and bad, moving shop somewhere else.

Live baiting, dog doping and illegal exports to Macaucan be addressed by better regulation – governments and authorities working smarter and harder. More graded races would extend racing careers.

But over-supply of dogs is a different issue. Removing breeding incentive programs by some states was a common sense step. But if that is not enough, this is the one price the sport may have to pay in order to survive.

In so many ways the NSW decision to ban rather than reform is a massive cop-out, borne out of reluctance and inability by the sport and government to weed out bad elements and properly regulate the activity.
