Eliminate Greyhound Racing
CD » One thing I would like to point out to anyone who has never been to a dog track is that a dog race is just about 30 seconds long. So those that try to promote dog racing will always say, ‘wait, they love to run.’ Well sure, if I were kept in a cage 22 hours a day on average and they let me out, I betcha I’d run too. They happen to be one of the fastest animals on earth; Greyhounds can run it’s estimated at 45 mph. But because they are such wonderful animals, and because they do love to run, it’s very cruel what this dog racing industry does to them. They are kept confined in stacked cages inside warehouses for most of the day. A few times a month they are let out to race. They get that 30 seconds of a race and then get put right back in the cage again. This is just no way to treat any dog especially a Greyhound who does love to run.
