This news comes from a protest carried out by Greyhound Action Scotland on September 24th 2008, at Shawfield Stadium at Rutherglen, Scotland.

The news report in the Rutherglen Reformer states:”

Members and supporters of Greyhound Action Scotland, an organisation which campaigns from street to Government for the ending of greyhound racing as an acceptable sport given the huge welfare issues, held an anti-racing demonstration ahead of a meeting.

This was to highlight conditions within the greyhound racing industry, and the protesters claim the mass slaughter of healthy greyhounds once they can no longer race.

They say that greyhound racing is widely seen as innocent entertainment but investigations into the sport have uncovered evidence of cruelty, neglect and widespread slaughter of dogs involved.”
