Re(3): Florida Dog racing question

If anybody needs to stop the bs rhetoric it's you zjaialai56 This industry that you are so proud of is illegal in 40 states HELLO... in just random drug testing, 847 dogs have tested positive for illegal drugs including cocaine over the last 10 years. 462 dogs have died at tracks in 5 years since reporting regulations became required. No statewide regulation exists for requiring reporting of injuries but when Seminole county passed a reporting regulation, between May 2017 and March 2018 56 injuries were reported - for SOCC alone. Some injuries were serious enough to require euthanasia. As far as your statement on their food..greyhounds are routinely fed 4D meat. That stands for dying, diseased, disabled and dead livestock deemed unfit for human consumption. Athletes diet indeed. As for saying 8,000 greyhounds will be euthanized, that is outrageous. The ban doesn't commence for 2 years, breeding of new dogs will now cease and the total number of racing greyhounds will dwindle considerably over time. Calling grey2k and humane society leeches is uncalled for. The greyhound industry brought this on themselves by fighting and litigating every sort of reasonable regulation such as reporting of deaths and injuries, drug testing and ending steroid injections in female greyhounds. I'm sorry you are losing your livelihood...but I am not sorry at all racing is ending. Like the thousands of Sears employees who have lost or are losing their jobs, unemployment happens.
