I was very pleased to drive past Henlow Greyhound Stadium on Saturday evening and see about a dozen protestors with their boards.

I gave them a toot of my support - I would have liked to join them but had other appointments. One board caught my eye - Dying to entertain you - and I hope many of the racegoers thought about those words as they put their bets on the evenings dogs, tomorrow's waste from this dreadful industry.

Do people realise greyhounds are bred in their tens of thousands every year - how many of these make it into comfy living rooms - nowhere near as many as the industry would have you believe. Greyhounds are beautiful docile dogs - they make wonderful pets and they should not be exploited the way they are. All you people who attended Saturday's racing - go and get your thrills elsewhere - because You Bet They Die.
