Laws forcing pet greyhounds to be muzzled in public will be scrapped by the Western Australian government.

Local Government Minister David Templeman says the change will help increase the number of adoptions and improve the perception of greyhounds in the community.

“I encourage every Western Australian to consider adoption, whether this is a greyhound from a rehoming agency or a dog from an animal refuge, as an alternative when getting their next dog,” Mr Templeman said.

The changes won’t apply to registered racing greyhounds, which will still need to be muzzled and on a lead when in public places.
