Police arrest second Ipswich man over live baiting

A SECOND Ipswich man has been charged with animal cruelty in the wake of a live-baiting scandal in the greyhound racing industry.

Police announced on Thursday afternoon they had charged a 25-year-old man from Coominya with six counts of serious animal cruelty.

He is set to appear in the Ipswich Magistrates Court on March 30.

It follows seven charges of animal cruelty being laid against Churchable greyhound trainer Tom Noble, who faced court on Tuesday.

Police warned Mr Noble, 68, would be the first in a series of arrests under a joint taskforce between the Queensland Police Service and the RSPCA.

The task force was established to investigate allegations trainers were using live animals to entice greyhounds to race.

The allegations first appeared in the ABC's Four Corners program.
