Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

Well, after having 18 rescued greyhounds from tracks all over the U.S., I can honestly say that every single one of these dogs have had some sort of injury in their career. I know this, because I had my vet document the findings. From broken bones(that had healed), to compression injuries in the spine(caused from taking a head roll on the track doing 35 + mph), to bad teeth, and being full of parasites, which by the way could've been prevented had the trainer, kennel tech, owner used some dewormer. Greyhound racing would be a different sport if the dogs were taken care of, but since they aren't, then maybe this "sport" needs to die or start taking care of the dogs.
