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.

Dip it in curry, pair it with the fluffy white rice, or eat it on its own—the fried chicken cutlet was so yummy that you can eat it any way you’d like and I promise it’ll still be as delicious. The curry gravy wasn’t too watery or thick—it was just the right texture for plain white rice, and I was so glad I asked the aunty for extra curry so I could drench my entire plate of rice <a href=http://fluffycat.ga/art/fluffy-cat/>Fluffy cat</a>

Their bodies are not commodities. They suffer and die horrific deaths.They are breed to suffer. Stop the subsidies that pay for animal abuse.
