Activists

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.

. Overall, the best

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

this sport
