Champion greyhound Pop the Cork was seized in the mix of the recent controversy of the “blooding scandal”. Damon Guppy of The Sunday Mail reported in the 1 March 2015 edition that Levitt Robinson, on behalf of Pop the Cork’s owner, threatened Supreme Court proceedings to secure his release.
Levitt Robinson’s litigation director Chrystalla Georgiou was quoted in the Sunday Mail, stating: “we all understand the seriousness of the live-baiting scandal but the existence of the issue should not mean that innocent parties are punished as a result.”
Following the fast exchanges between Ms Georgiou and Racing Queensland, Pop the Cork was safely released on Tuesday 3 March 2015.
