IGB review leaves out DEATH RATE of dogs - U BET THEY DIE. Greyhound Racing needs to end .

category national | animal rights | press release author Tuesday July 08, 2014 13:46author by Bernie Wrightauthor email bigbrownrat at gmail dot comauthor address AFAR, PO Box 4734, D 1author phone 0872651720 Report this post to the editors

KILL Greyhound Racing-not dogs

A review of the Irish Greyhound Racing Industry by Indecon has said it believed that a “more severe system of sanctions” was needed to prevent animal cruelty in Racing.
We in AFAR however feel that this statement is naive and is based solely on improving the Industry image to raise revenue.

What is obviously excluded from the report is the DEATH RATE of ex-racing Greyhounds that is conveniently overlooked. The suffering of ‘raced’ dogs is immeasurable and has only been documented due to the reports of people rescuing these unfortunate animals. Greyhounds have been butchered, drugged, abandoned, vivisected on in our collages,shot and mutilated when their money making days are over. Pits have been uncovered with buried dogs and a slaughterhouse using Bolt-guns to legally kill these dogs was also exposed.

Sadness of gentle, loving dogs being treated as disposeable objects by the IGB

The suffering of ‘raced’ dogs is immeasurable and has only been documented due to the reports of people rescuing these unfortunate animals. Greyhounds have been butchered, drugged, abandoned, vivisected on in our collages,shot and mutilated when their money making days are over. Pits have been uncovered with buried dogs and a slaughterhouse using Bolt-guns to legally kill these dogs was also exposed.

Bord na gCon tried to export Greyhounds to China a few years back but were stopped by public outcry, now they have the nerve to talk about improving ‘welfare’. As is often said…they would say mass!

Of course, this list of sick practices should be enough to end this vile so called gambling based sport. Despite the toll of gambling on families and the lack of an underage limit at tracks this failing Industry continues to be given millions of taxpayer’s money by those puppet politicians who turn a blind eye to animal suffering. The thousands who die annually are gentle trusting dogs who deserve better.

We urge all involved to seriously consider ending this useless and sad Industry, it is dying anyway due to its own greed and mismanagement , let it pass into history in 2014.
