An Australian racetrack has been experiencing backlash after last Monday's live baiting scandal rocked the sporting world.
The Canberra Greyhound Racing Club, which was uninvolved in the scandal, told the Canberra Times that at least one sponsor has dropped out, and a staff member was spit on and cursed at by a passer-by for wearing the club's shirt.
While spitting on staff isn't the most commendable way to express dissatisfaction, the incident reflects the widespread outrage directed at the racing community after the revelation that the archaic practice of live baiting was still happening at some tracks. The brutal training method involves spinning screaming rabbits, piglets and possums around the track to engage greyhounds' chasing instinct.
The animals used as bait are often mauled to death at the end of the race.
