Re: “Kennel No. 1

Hugs, kisses and a huge thank you to Tim Vanderpoolfrom the Tucson and South Tucson community, and all who live in Pima County, for exposing yet another abomination on how the Tucson Greyhound Park 'cares' for its racing greyhounds. The steps taken by The Arizona Department of Racing to more closely monitor this operation is long overdue. If ADR is strapped for funding to pay investigators, perhaps it could recruit and train a team of volunteers with investigative experience to do some of the leg work. I,for one, would volunteer.
Arizona is one of few states where greyhound racing remains legal.In my opinion, I would like to see Governor Jan Brewer and her entourage make an unexpected visit to TGP. I wonder how long it would take before she ran from the kennel covered with ticks, fleas, fecus, and a visual experience that would sear her brain and cause her sleepless nights for many years. Assuming, of course, that she has compassion for our four legged, furry friends. It's about time our elected officials stepped up to the plate and made greyhound racing illegal in Arizona.
For those readers who believe that greyhounds must be pretty dumb because they run around in circles, I point such readers to race car drivers. Don't they charge around in their cars in a circle? Yes,they do, and for the same reason that people breed and race greyhounds - to make money. But greyhounds are not race cars. They are living creatures that are gentle and sensitive by nature and make wonderful pets once they are rescued from the track and and move into homes where dog lovers will provide a safe and loving environment.
In my opinion, Tom Taylor should find another way to make a living. Perhaps as a politician? He always has an excuse when something is amiss with the conditions under which greyhounds struggle to survive at TGP. SHAME ON YOUR TOM TAYLOR.
