Disgraced greyhound trainers face court today

ALEX HEINKE reports.

Disgraced Queensland greyhound trainer Tom Noble will go on trial in October for his alleged breaches of animal protection laws after fronting up to the Ipswich Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

The 68-year-old banned trainer fronted Court alongside a host of fellow trainers who also had their matters heard.


Mr Noble was granted a trial date of October 22 for one count of breaching a duty of care to animals and two counts of “keeping or using kill or lure for blooding or coursing”.

Noble is also facing seven distinct charges of serious animal cruelty, issued in the wake of the ABC’s Four Corners expose on the widespread use of live baiting in the greyhound industry.
