Grey2K USA released hidden-camera footage today from the kennel area at Tucson Greyhound Park in Arizona. The pro-racing crowd will see this video and claim these dogs are treated so very well – better than you treat your family pets.
Tucson Greyhound Park CEO and general manager Tom Taylor was quoted in the story as saying – ‘They saw what they wanted to see.” And the piece includes this – “” Taylor says Tucson Greyhound Park is one of the best remaining racing facilities in the country. He calls the kennels an ideal place for dogs. “”
So watch the video and keep in mind this individual notes this one of the “best racing facilities in the county” and Taylor says it’s an ideal place for dogs. If Taylor is right, we need a nation-wide ban on greyhound racing, starting today. He makes a case for shutting it down.
Taylor tries to claim the dogs don’t want to be outside, as if he knows dogs. If he knew anything about dogs, he’d know they don’t want to be caged 22 hours or more each day and he’d know they would much prefer to live with families. If he knew anything about dogs, he’d know these kennels are from being an ideal place for them.
So if it’s about what the dogs want, shut down racing today.
