Dog Protection Act Proposes to Phase Out Greyhound Racing

Posted By on Wed, Feb 28, 2007 at 2:14 AM

If you have been reading this blog for a while you probably know more about greyhounds and greyhound racing then you previously did.

When someone sent me this headline, I practically jumped out of my skin with excitement.

The Dog Protection Act is being proposed in New Hampshire, not Arizona. However, I am happy for the greyhounds in New Hampshire. Perhaps Arizona will be the next undertaking, what with the 180 missing and presumed dead greyhounds from last year.

According to this press release, more than 700 dogs have been injured in the past two years at New Hampshire tracks. Don't think that this is an exception; it's more the rule.

A 65-page report outlining the ills of the New Hampshire greyhounds has been sent to lawmakers in that state. To view photos, injuries, and deaths of New Hampshire greyhounds, click here. Greyhound racing is no picnic for the dogs.
