Anyone out there making $$ off the backs of any animals are scum.
There are other ways to make a buck, so please stop torturing innocent animals who deserve a life without cruelty.
Stop all forms of animal sports for $$. It’s just WRONG!
Ive worked around these amazing greyhounds and i promise u they get better treatment then house dogs do.
I doubt it. My dogs don’t eat 4D meat – raw meat not fit for human consumption made from dead, dying, diseased, and downer animals. My dogs get premium grain-free kibble and the same table food that I eat — chicken, rice, carrots, eggs, apples.
My dogs also sleep on the couch (my couch), the bed (my bed), and a futon bed. I tuck them in every night. My dogs are spayed & neutered. My female is not shot up with steroids any longer because she’s spayed.
I have a spacious crate (bigger than track regulation) for when I do respite fostering and neither of my dogs will go in there even to get a good treat.
Oh, by the way in this video the GM of Tucson Greyhound Park says that he would not keep his pet dog in the track kennels so wherever you have worked must have been far better than here in South Tucson.
If not an end to greyhound racing I certainly think we need tighter regulation.
I rather put my time and energy at ending greyhound racing. Regulation means next to nothing here in Arizona. Nothing is enforced and it’s been proven time and time again that most tracks cannot police themselves. There is no budget for constant and diligent investigation.
People who have attended Arizona Department of Racing meetings tell me over and over that the words “greyhound welfare” are never mentioned. Regulation means nothing here.
Often times when an issue becomes public, it’s not from an investigation by a regulatory agency, it’s because one kennel operator turned on another kennel operator. Last year 8 dogs died while being transported from a breeding farm in Oklahoma to race in Tucson. The owner of one of the dead dogs wanted the transporter to pay him for the dead dog. The transporter refused. The owner took the matter to the state. Otherwise who is too know?
Greyhounds die in the name of greyhound racing; it must end.
I agree, Greyhound racing must end. It is so inhumane. They are treated like numbers, objects. They are just used for racing and if they don’t make it, they are killed. Just like how the Ititarod dogs in Alaska are treated. They are abused and made to race and if they don’t they get killed. It is inhumane and this barbaric racing must end. Minnesota and many other states have shut down this barbaric practice. Just like the circuses with animal abuse must end, we humans need to stop using animals. They have feelings, they feel pain and they are intelligent.
