I have a rescued greyhound. Every year, young and healthy dogs are killed because they lack winning potential, were injured while racing, or are no longer competitive. Racing greyhounds routinely experience terrible injuries on the track, such as broken legs, cardiac arrest, spinal cord paralysis and broken necks. My own dog has an injured neck, so I can speak from experience.
They also suffer off the track, spending most of their time in stacked, warehouse-style kennels. Given the cruelty to greyhounds, I hope the government can move to consider a ban on dog racing here in Wales.
