Greyhound trainers back in court over live baiting charges

CHURCHABLE greyhound trainers Deborah Ann Arnold and Thomas Adrian Noble have had their matters mentioned in court.

Both were charged earlier this year after covert footage of live baiting allegedly occurring in the Lockyer Valley was aired on national television.

Ms Arnold and Mr Noble did not appear on Wednesday in Ipswich Magistrates Court when their matters were mentioned briefly.

Both are facing seven serious animal cruelty charges.

Mr Noble is facing further charges including using animals to lure for blooding or coursing and breaching a duty of care to an animal and intimidation against a witness.

Ms Arnold's matter was adjourned until February 24 and Mr Noble's matter was also adjourned until February 2.

The pair was among more than 20 greyhound trainers charged with alleged livebaiting offences following the expose on ABC's Four Corners.
