Complaint Filed Against Tucson Greyhound Park

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2007 at 4:14 PM

From a press release distributed by the Greyhound Protection League:

Joan Eidinger, editor and publisher of Greyhound Network News, filed a complaint Thursday with the Arizona Department of Racing in the controversial death of Mismakamess. The complaint alleges that Tucson Greyhound Park (TGP) management and state racing officials were in violation of racing rules and regulations when they summarily euthanized Missy, who had sustained a minor injury on August 31. Alleged violations include R-19-329 (B) which states: “Every effort must be made to adopt the greyhounds not used for racing or breeding purposes.”

As was attested to in a related TGP Stewards Hearing on September 4, kennel owner David Blair attempted to prevent Missy’s death by contacting a rescue group for immediate intervention.

Named in the complaint are: State Chief TGP Steward Eddie Rosano, state Chief Greyhound Veterinarian Andrew Carlton, track veterinarian Betty Menke, Tom Taylor, TGP’s CEO and general manager and president of the Tucson chapter of Greyhound Pets of America, trainer Kevin Mathieu and kennel owner Patricia Mathieu.
