It seems that the folk at Henlow greyhound stadium seem to have missed the point that they are part of the mass industry of destruction that is greyhound racing.
One of the pro-racing letters printed last week says: "They could more easily injure themselves running across a lawn in a back garden."
You may also want to watch:
Yes, accidents can happen at home, but I think racing six dogs at high speed around bends is far more dangerous. This is clearly shown by the many dogs that did not finish their races in the last month alone at Henlow - one dog ended up with a broken hock and another got impaled on the rails, which does not sound very safe to me.
Perhaps, if the trainers love and care for their dogs as much as they say they do, then why do not they just adore them and pamper them at home like loved family pets should be, rather than associate themselves with such an industry?
