RSPCA WILL NOT PURSUE BOARDING KENNEL PROSECUTION

Baron the greyhound

The RSPCA will NOT prosecute the owners of a Port Stephens boarding kennel, after a greyhound called Baron was found dead in their care over Christmas.

A post-mortem carried out by the welfare group has determined Baron likely died from a bacterial infection, rather than heatstroke.

The RSPCA says the examination was unable to provide conclusive evidence for a prosecution.

Baron’s sudden death has sparked calls for reforms in the industry.
