Greyhound races are an unnecessary and cruel form of entertainment for humans, as the animals are often kept in cramped cages for long hours, and can succumb to injury, heart attacks and heat stroke due to the racing. Though more and more greyhounds are being properly retired when their racing days are over, many are still abandoned, shot, sent to overcrowded shelters or to medical laboratories. [Source]
I can’t believe this shit is still legal in the US. I know there will be a time when we look at the animals we used for entertainment like in greyhound races, horse races, orcas in SeaWorld shows, elephants and tigers in circuses, etc.. and think how barbaric that they used to do that—I just want that day to come sooner rather than later!
