A new survey - the largest of its kind undertaken - offers a disturbing insight into the world of greyhound racing and the set task demanded of these athletes: the racing at speed on tight anti-clockwise tracks.

Some more 'animal lovers' proving that there are limits to their love. Greyhound racing should be banned just like horse racing should be banned. And just think, one of the posts on that linked blog indicated that the Irish dog racing board is considering or even has already, sending their dogs to China! Oh my gosh, how blatantly cruel! The fledgling animal rights groups in China don't need another bunch of animal abusing cretins to deal with.<br><br>
Thanks for sharing the link. I hope anyone who thinks dog racing isn't so bad gets to see it. I was on another site last week (wish I could remember where it was) and someone there was defending dog racing. I'd go back and link that blog up if I could remember. See what she has to say after this.

Once again, it sounds like things are a lot worse for racing greyhounds in the UK than here in the USA. Not that I approve of canine slavery, but the conditions seem to be a lot better here, with far fewer injuries. My dad volunteers with a greyhound adoption group, so I've seen a lot of what goes on, including visiting two tracks and kennels. These days, every track has at least one adoption group that works with it to make sure EVERY retired dog is moved to a rescue group to be adopted out, rather than being killed.<br><br>
