Ban Greyhound Racing in the U.S.

PETITION: Ban Greyhound Racing in the U.S.

TARGET: Governors of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Texas, and West Virginia

In the last five years, nearly 1,000 racing greyhounds have died and 12,000 have suffered injuries from broken legs, crushed skulls, broken necks, paralysis, seizures, and death by electrocution. As these are just the reported injuries and deaths, the majority of the 80,000 greyhounds born into dog racing can't even be accounted for. Seven states still have active greyhound tracks, despite the injuries, deaths, and cruelty surrounding the industry. They are fed a diet based on cheap, diseased meat, and are routinely deprived of basic veterinary care. Greyhounds are often dosed with dangerous, illegal drugs and some dogs have even tested positive for cocaine. Greyhound racing is illegal in most of the country. But we need your help in signing this petition to demand that the cruel practice of greyhound racing be brought to an end in the seven remaining states where racing continues.

Respectfully,

I am sending asking for help to sign any petition to get justice for this cruelty. The horrible treatment of racing dogs, horses or any other animal having to be put in conditions for profit of money. This processes changes people to cut corners, hurting, and even having these animals performing to death because cheap nor medical care. As these defenseless animals any mouse, rat, dogs, cats and other type whether small or large need a voice and justice the harm, torture and killing as they don't stand a chance of surviving due to cruelty torture there needs to be stiff penalty and jail time for the inhumane act. As these cruel inhumane acts leads en-courage bad behavior and teaches this act as if it is okay be to hurting children and seniors whether seen or unseen behind closed doors. My hope to establish a nationwide and hopefully worldwide list to incarcerate bad humans. sending with prayers and blessings. THANKS !
