I am sitting here, in York England UK, cuddling my two rescued ex- racing greyhounds whilst reading the article and comments about the Tucson Greyhound Park and injecting the female dogs with anabolic steroids!
As if these dogs don't have enough trauma to put up with whilst racing - without this i.e The filthy conditions in which some of them live, the food which is just good enough to keep them racing, the horrific injuries sustained whilst racing and being "finished off" at very early ages because they cannot run fast enough to earn their owners any money!!
If the Tucson Law forbids it then why are these people allowed to perpetrate this crime - because it is a crime! Just like drunk driving!
I have had 5 rescued greyhounds and they make the most loving faithful pets Its just as if they know they have been rescued from horrendous end! However many of them do suffer from illness because of what has happened to them whilst racing
I am at a later stage in life and I run Marathons - slowly - but I get there I would hate to have someone inject me just so I could run faster!!!
YOU BET THEY DIE!!! I will not be happy until all greyhound tracks are closed all over the world
Some of your States have taken the lead and tracks are closing Please keep up the good work of reporting all actions against greyhounds

A great Big Thank You to all who exposed the Tucson Greyhound Park BUT Why are they still allowed to stage greyhound racing there ?? Why have they not been shut down?
Can you imagine the misery of these poor dogs who have to live in filth so that they can be let our now and again to make money for their owners "YOU BET _ THEY DIE!!"
The owners cannot have gone into the kennel very often to look at the dogs or they would have had to expose them selves to all the fleas and worse!
I would make them live in the kennel for a month or longer under the same conditions!
Please people of the United States of America Campaign for the closure of all dog tracks and the welfare of all racing dogs once they cease to race
Keep up the good work Tucson Weekly
