I recently read a story about a man named David Smith. David Smith has, in only 15 years, killed around 10,000 greyhounds that have been deemed no longer suitable for racing. Frankly this disgusts me and racing industries and the breeders should be ashamed.

How you could manage to do this to a fellow creature is sickening. Twelve thousand retired greyhounds go missing every year and most of these are submitted to horrid tortures such as being let loose on motorways, drowned, abandoned, shot, poisoned or sold for vivisection. I hope this incident will bring to people's attention that this so-called sport is a violent and corrupt industry and needs to be abolished. Anyone who would like to find out more should go to PETA.co.uk
