        Funny! I may not agree with greyhound racing, but how many of you are gonna agree with this, yet go out and buy a few storebought turkeys and hams?

        dtsweet....would you please stop confusing things with LOGIC!   

        Very true.  We tend to have our "pet" issues; yet, we won't apply the same reasoning we passionately bring to our pet issues to other areas of our lives.

        You two are killin' me ♥

        Are you suggesting that in order to justify true concern for the abuse of animals, one must  become a vegetarian? Does the fact that I eat turkey make my concerns on an issue such as this illegitimate? Just curious.

        There ARE humane methods of bringing turkey to our table. If you'd like, you may donate to that cause as well.

        Hi Froggy,

        Thanks very much to even take the time and concern about such cruelty to this animal. The fact you even took the time to post this, you have done more than most  would have.

        I heard one story while i was in the car one day where some SOB who raced greyhounds took his dog who could no longer race and tied him to a tree and burned him alive because he was mad that he could no longer make him money.

        Yeah,  it would be nice to save the turkeys and the hams and every other living thing in this world. I suppose we could all start eating vegetable and plant life, but then again thats a living thing as well.....

        There is cruelty across the board to all animals from the slaughter houses to pet owners. You made a stand somewhere froggy and it's greatly appreciated.

        LOL, I AM a vegetarian...I give the same value to the unattractive turkey as the 'cute' bunny...I don't favour the kissable ones
        I have to admit, if I were starving, and it came down to me or the deer, the deer is going down
        But as it stands we ain't kind to the farmed and boxed animals..least the greyhounds get to run lol

        Sad a topic so righteous had to lose the focus and almost make someone feel guilty for caring

        lol, not at all. It IS a good cause, I was just reminding others not to become too indignant at the plight, while turning round and doing the same in another regard

        Well Froggy, I can see your point. Yes, there is abuse with dog racing. But what about the other animals who are used in similar style?

        Also, what about the people involved in the track, but not with the dogs? The cooks in the resturant, the ticket sellers, the vendors and other track employees.

        Let's not forget the people who sell to the track emplopyees. such as grocery stores, clothing shops and gas stations. How this changes when you shut a facility like this down.

        I appreciate your stand, but it would hurt so many, not too mention the loss of revenue for the local area and state.

        Good job!  Well....we humans have a high ability to CARE.  We often tend to ultra-focus on an area we feel is VERY imporant......logic isn't important for the moment.  The heart leads!

        ah-nuts, I gotta throw my 3 cents n here, lol. When your talking cruelty to these animals, (greyhounds) is it the fact that you see them, or visualize them, running on a track, and there straining to win the race, or does it have to do with their handlers? .................
