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

Virginia, it my horror to even find these clips, but, I encourage (more like implore) all who care in the least for animals, especially greys, to copy them, and use them EVERY time you find an article discussing grey racing. racing supporters are always the first to post on these articles, but, we need to take the lead and post links like these so anyone uninformed about the horrors of Grey racing will see those horrors before the killers get the chance to tell their lies. Even if everything we give to them comes back to us a thousands times over, Thank You for being so generous to your hounds.

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

To all those who wonder about Greyhound racing, and to those who take the morally reprehensible position that Grey racing should be legal:
Ignoring all of the evidence proving that Greys suffer in innumerable ways at racetracks does not make any of it go away, from malnourishment (including feeding them 4D meat (the meat from dying and "downer" cows)), to debilitating injuries, to premature deaths. If ANYONE believes the Grey racing proponents here, or anywhere else, venture forth. Just a few, minimal examples are right here. Of course, these don't fit the Greyhound Racing Association's talking points, do they? Just so EVERYONE reading this knows the malice and ill-will cavalierly thrown about by these imposters who pretend that track racing is good for Greys, let's have a look at these vids and articles, and then see who the liars REALLY are, shall we?
Let’s start here. I can’t even watch this one, again. You can see the fear in the poor puppy’s eyes. He’s been listening to all his sisters and brothers screaming when they were tattooed, so he is already scared. His anticipatory fear simply amplifies the pain.

And it only gets worse from there. So, EVERY TIME someone tells you how “innocent” Grey racing is, or how much “Greyhounds love to run,” ask them, “How much do Greyhounds love to run at racetracks?” Ask them “How much did the Greyhound looking right (in the middle of this clip from GreytExploitations.com) love hearing a racemate scream in agony, before watching it snap its neck?

Hmmm...any questions?
The Faustian Bargain
(This portion is regarding the racing industry's propoganda (lies) that Grey2KUSA.org actually makes up the numbers used to report on deaths and injuries at Grey racetracks. We are speaking directly to the racing industry, as they are keen to make up lies to make their immoral industry more palatable to moral and conscientious people.) As for Grey2KUSA.org, they ACTUALLY get the numbers directly from the tracks themselves when tracks report them to the states, as required by law in some states. So, Grey2KUSA.org’s numbers are as far from made up as your claims of the innocence of Grey racing is from the truth. As you said (as a racing supporter), when someone (you) gets their numbers from a skewed source... Do you Grey racing supporters EVER read this stuff through before posting it? My word, Swiss cheese can only DREAM of having so many holes! As for Greyhound Pets, Inc., I feel they are a great group. They have wonderful things for one particular Grey who holds the most special place in my heart. However, they are "neutral" on racing in a Faustian Bargain, because most tracks REFUSE TO ADOPT OUT TO GROUPS WHO OPENLY OPPOSE GREY RACING! Therefore, no matter how vile they find racing (and they DO find it vile!), they agree to not speak ill of the tracks because the tracks will then go back to killing ALL the Greys, instead of adopting some out. A Faustian Bargain, definitely, but it saves thousands of Greys from the horrible deaths you otherwise give them. I have to ask, do you tear their ears off before or after you murder them? (for new readers, the Greyhound racing industry tears the ears off of the former racers before they dump them in mass graves, which may be by the roadside, because they have to remove the ears because of the identifying tattoos shown in clip number , above.). There are clips of dead Greys who have had their ears torn off, as well, in the above clips, so don’t for a minute think you can call this fact a “lie”, or “propaganda”, and all the usual tactics you employ.
As well, don't even THINK of saying these are coyotes or foxes, as some have tried before. Different noses, different heads, and different fur.
As well, there are vids ALL OVER the internet. How dim-witted does one have to be to think that people have not ALREADY gone to the web to check out these vids and articles on Grey abuse, neglect, and death? O.K., well, then, here YOU go, because maybe you are just that dim-witted, and need to see it for yourselves:
Ignoring all of the evidence to prove that Greys at racetracks suffer in innumerable (look it up) ways, from malnourishment, to debilitating injuries, to premature deaths, does not make it go away. If ANYONE believes the Grey racing proponents here, or anywhere else, venture forth. Just a few, minimal examples are right here. Of course, those don't fit the Greyhound Racing Association of America mantra, do they. Just so EVERYONE reading this knows the malice and ill-will cavalierly thrown about by these imposters who pretend that track racing is good for Greys, have another look at these vids and articles, and then see who the liars REALLY are. You can go online and find innumerable videos and articles on the abuse on Greyhounds at the tracks, and the thousands of Greys bred to produce a few hundred “acceptable” (read: money-maker) racers.
