Pecan Minelli became the third greyhound to be euthanised at a West Australian racetrack in eight days after breaking a leg while racing on Tuesday night.

Speaking to ABC Perth's Mornings program, Greens MLC Brad Pettitt said the sport, with its dwindling public support, should be phased out over a two-year period.

"We're going to be asking some questions of the Racing and Gaming Minister [Tony Buti] through the parliamentary process," he said.

"Too many dogs are getting injured and too many are getting killed."

Mr Buti told the ABC he was greatly concerned about animal welfare.
