protest against the abuse and neglect of greyhounds found abundantly in the
sports’ vast empire. Even if, a bill was passed controlling greyhound races,
there will always be a legal side to this game and even worse, with tougher
sanctions, most likely animal cruelty will soar due to lack of opportunities to
rise and race greyhounds by those, who can ill-afford it. True that
there is a widespread inhumane treatment to most of our furred and feathered
friends, but I am against it with all my heart, but a solution is not a ban or
a boycott to a very popular sport.
Globally, greyhound racing is an official sport, but there
is more to it than this face of speed and glamour we see. The plight of
greyhounds in more impoverished and unauthorized regions is pitiful. Instead of campaigning for animal rights, they have summed up an
impressive list of facts, devoid of clever strategies and simply attacked this
sport itself with all its reforms, laws and assets.

ultimatum would be campaigning for the right thing in a right manner!
Apart from the fact, they are not thinking along the lines
of Mother Nature, but like any opposing party – just like others do. People say that dog racing is a useless, meager and cruel
practice serving the cause of a specific industry of profit and entertainment
at a heavy price from the animals, such as ill confinement, starvation, race
injuries, brutal culling etc.
It is said that more greyhounds are bred every year than are
needed. Protesting against poor dwelling places and lack of human contact of
greyhounds activists have, in my view, taken a rather tactless stance against
