I could not believe it when I was told about the latest abhorrent treatment regarding British and Irish Greyhounds.
We all know how these poor dogs are treated at the end of their days. Their lives are miserable anyway, they are given laxatives to run faster, they are treated so cruelly by their owners, not all perhaps. When the poor Greyhounds have run until they are injured or not able to run anymore they are thrown away, butchered – the end is dreadful.
Thank God for the Charities that look after Greyhounds, thank God for all those people that adopt Greyhounds. I adopted a cross Lurcher myself some years ago, she had been through a lot at 5 months of age when we adopted now, even now at five years of age one side of her little face she won’t let you touch it, she has a scar where she had been hit. She even cries in her sleep.
Greyhounds are such gentle sweet dogs, great company for anyone, especially for a family. To ill treat these sweet gentle dogs for me is barbaric. But, what I have now heard made me physically sick.
Owners in this Country and Ireland are selling, yes selling their Greyhounds they no longer have any use for, to the Chinese. Why do the Chinese want them, well they need them for bone marrow and whatever else the dogs may give them.
The Chinese to obtain what they need from these sweet gentle dogs, they “BOIL THE DOGS ALIVE”. I trust on reading this you will feel as ill as I did you will be so upset as I was.
I am appealing now for this obscene and barbaric treatment of these wonderful Greyhounds to end. I am asking for the selling of these greyhounds to China to cease and I am asking for all Animal Protection Groups to bring prosecutions against all owners in Britain and Ireland of Greyhounds who sell their Greyhounds to China.
This disgusting, obscene, beyond cruel treatment of Britain’s and Ireland’s Greyhounds has to END NOW.
THE REAL TRUTH OF GREYHOUND RACING, WHY IT SHOULD END NOW.
The most gentle of Dogs, having Daisy our cross Lurcher she has been through so much, adopted three times ill treated and given back to the Dogs Home, we adopted her and have never looked back. She is my baby she gives so much love always wanting to kiss me, she brings tears to my eyes how desperately she wants to give her love.
Please help stop this dreadful ill treatment of the most gentlest of dogs.
