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

"Hogue admires the athleticism of the dogs. She maintains that the injury rate at the track is "less than 10 percent," and most injuries are muscular, though data supplied by the state Racing Commission to the Times shows that 14 of the 23 injuries recorded by the state vet through March 19 were bone fractures. "

That sums up the whole racing industry right there. Lies, obfuscations and delusions. If she's spent as much time around racing and greyhounds as she says, there's no way she wouldn't know what is really happening to the dogs.

Track owners want out, the big gambling interests want out, the gambling public wants to be left to their poker and slots. That should tell you all you need to know about greyhound racing right there, except that as it dies the danger to the dogs will mount.
