The Greyhound Alliance has taken their fight to secure their future to the people at the Australian National Field Days.
Greyhound Alliance committee member and Dubbo’s track manager Shayne Stiff said the goal of the campaign was simply to meet people.
“The vast majority of people haven’t seen (greyhounds) or even patted them,” Mr Stiff said.
“There’s a perception that because they have muzzles on they’re a dangerous but they’re placid.”
Mr Stiff said the recent repealing of the controversial ban didn’t put an end to their fight.
“We need to make sure the Nationals and other parties don’t think we’re a minority, especially here with the Orange byelection,” he said.
“I’ve met thousands of people and I’ve only met two people who said greyhound racing should be banned.”
After two days at the field days, Mr Stiff said the feedback from people had been good, with many offering their support for greyhound owners and trainers after the government’s attempted shutdown.
