Palaszczuk dumps racing boss in greyhound crackdown

ALL greyhound racing boards have been abolished following recommendations from the Queensland Government inquiry into the industry.

Racing Queensland chief Darren Condon has been stood down and asked to show cause why he should keep his job.

Racing Minister Bill Byrne said it was clear self-regulation of the industry had failed.

"The industry has dismally failed those animals it relies on for profit," Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

She said the "damning" inquiry offered 15 recommendations.

Ms Palaszczuk praised the animal welfare groups and ABC's Four Corners program for exposing greyhound baiting.

She and Mr Byrne also thanked the RSPCA and the Queensland Police Service for investigating the greyhound baiting scandal.
