Greyhounds. Please pass House Bill 564!

Subject: Greyhounds: Please pass House Bill 564!

Dear Sir, Madam:

Live greyhound racing was outlawed in New Hampshire in 2010. However, local gamblers are still allowed to bet remotely on dog races from some of the worst tracks in other states (an activity called simulcasting). These tracks have low standards and do not even report greyhound racing injuries to the public.

House Bill 564 will ensure that New Hampshire racetracks only accept greyhound simulcast signals from states that publicly report greyhound injuries.

Research shows that more dogs are made available for adoption and there is more attention to protecting greyhounds when tracks must account for their dogs. In fact, after injury reporting was required in New Hampshire, greyhound adoption doubled!

Please limit simulcast gambling to only states that report greyhound injuries; this is consistent with the long history of New Hampshire in enacting laws to protect greyhounds!
It is wrong for New Hampshire tracks to accept bets on races taking place at some of the country's worst tracks.

At Ebro Greyhound Park, 42 dogs were left to starve to death by their kennel operator.
At Daytona Beach and tracks across the state, dogs have test positive for serious drugs including cocaine.
At the Sanford Orlando Kennel Compound, a three-year-old greyhound was electrocuted due to a faulty, ill-maintained lure. At Palm Beach, another young dog broke two legs and was euthanized. To see the last races of Birthday Toy and Jawa Spock, please go here.
By passing HB 564, New Hampshire can play a key role in encouraging these tracks to improve standards!!

Dog tracks are using all kinds of scare tactics to try to defeat this bill, but their claims about job loss are completely unfounded and not based on any true reading of the bill. According to data from the Pari-Mutuel Commission itself, the impact of this bill is very limited. Only 22% of all simulcast wagering in New Hampshire is based on dog racing, and of the 22%, only several tracks would be impacted. Once these tracks begin reporting, their signals can be restored.
Cruelty should not be rewarded. For the sake of transparency and to protect greyhounds, all dog tracks should report on the injuries suffered by racing greyhounds.

Help us pass HB 564 into law!! Thank you!

Sincerely:

Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry,

Senator Joe Ludwig .

Dear Senator:

Right now, there are hundreds of greyhounds living at the Canidrome dog track in Macau. These dogs are kept in small cages, and every single one will eventually be killed.
Macau is the only legal dog track in China. The situation is terrible for dogs at this facility.

Every year hundreds of greyhounds are imported from Australia, and all are killed when they are injured or no longer profitable. Also, there are documents which expose  severe injury problems at the Canidrome.

Please Senator, HALT the export of Greyhounds to Macau in China!

Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium, UK

To: eric.pickles@communities.gsi.gov.uk
Subject: L&Q scheme/Walthamstow Stadium/UK


Dear Mr Pickles

Re: Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium, 300 Chingford Road, LondonE4 8SJ

Dear Sir:

I am writing to you about the proposed L&Q scheme on the site of
Walthamstow Stadium. I am aware that it has been referred to you.

I would urge you not to call in this scheme. The site has been unused
for nearly five years now and Waltham Forest desperately needs housing
and the investment the scheme would bring.

There is no viable alternative. The gambling industry is lobbying for
the return of the dog track but both the Mayor and GLA assessments
found that the dog track was not viable, there has been a previous assessment.

There have been concerns about the L&Q scheme making a loss but any
loss would come out of L&Q reserves and the tax payer would not be
liable. L&Q deny the scheme would make a loss anyway.

Whilst there may be some local people who want the return of dog
racing, it is worth noting that of the 2380 representations to the GLA
on the scheme, 1990 were opposed to the dog track reopening because of
animal welfare concerns. People are now more aware of the cruelty of
the dog racing industry.

It is time to move on and get housing and investment into
WalthamForest rather than for the site to remain empty for even longer
with no benefit to Waltham Forest.

Thank you for considering my opinion on this issue and I hope you will
let me know your decision on this matter.

Sincerely: full name, address etc.
-------------------------------------------
Following Waltham Forest Council passing a planning application for
houses to be built on Walthamstow dog track in May, Mayor Boris
Johnson has now approved the scheme.

The gambling industry is calling on Eric Pickles - the Secretary of State for
Communities and Local Government ? to intervene and pro-dog racing
Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy has been urging people to write to Eric
Pickles to call in the scheme.

The dog racing industry see the return of Walthamstow dog track as
very important to the future of the dog racing industry in the UK so
to stop it would be a major blow to them.

We suggest people write to Eric Pickles to ask him to not call in the
scheme and so reject any return of dog racing.

Response from ASDA
4 years ago

Hi Gabriela
Thank you for taking the time to contact us about the sponsorship of races at your local Greyhound Track.
I'm sorry for any offense caused by the sponsorship of the dog races. I've spoken to Darren, the Store Manager at our Brighton store who explained an event was organised for around 70 colleagues from our Brighton Hollingbury and Ferring stores to attended the stadium as a fundraising event for one of our charities Tickled Pink.
The event raised over £600 and overall, we have received good feedback about the night and helping to raise the awareness of Breast Cancer.
However, we understand some customers maybe unhappy with Asda being associated with such an event and we've made our colleagues aware of the potential upset this could cause. In the future, any events of this nature will be carefully considered before being planned.
Thanks again Gabriela for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I hope this email will help explain our position.
Kind Regards
Rachel Nicholson

Dear Sir,

In February 2011, GREY2K USA released an otherwise comprehensive Report on Greyhound Racing in Arizona.
This report contained the following clarification: "Since November 2009, the Arizona Department of Racing has denied multiple public information requests for additional injury data."

A few days ago GREY2K USA received proof that Dr. Andrew Carlton, Chief Veterinarian for the Department has in fact been in possession of injury documentation.
This suggests that the agency has been playing hide-and-seek with the public record.

To: gce@raem.gov.mo
Subject: Canidrome China, Brooklyn


Dr. Chui Sai On,
Chief Executive Macau SAR Gov.,
Praia Grande Ave., Macau, China.
Dear Dr. Chui Sai On,

As you know, worlwide attention has focused on the suffering and death of greyhounds used for racing at the Canidrome. I am writing about a particular dog named Brooklyn.

Brooklyn is four-years-old and he is a white, red and fawn greyhound. Unfortunately, he has been injured and his immediate future is now very uncertain.

On May 6, Brooklyn fell while racing. Track records document that he was cut and wounded. This was the fourth race in a row in which he has finished in fifth place or worse.

According to the Macau Daily Times, when dogs finish outside the top three in five races in a row, they are destroyed. The head of Macau's animal control department has stated that every greyhound arriving at the track is dead within three years and as many as four hundred greyhounds are killed each year.

Brooklyn’s days are numbered and I am asking you to order his release. I also ask that you force track officials to work with Albano Martins and ANIMA to implement a permanent adoption program for all greyhounds at the facility.

As long as dog racing continues at the Canidrome, greyhounds will suffer as will the reputation of Macau. For the sake of the greyhounds and to protect the honor of Macau, please act now.

Ask for Removal of Rogue Dog Race Regulator
4 years ago

Dear Friends,

Today, I sent a letter to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer asking that she remove Racing Commissioner Rory Goree from office. Now, I need your help. For years, Mr. Goree has spread false accusations regarding GREY2K USA and our work to help greyhounds. Over the last few months, however, he has crossed the line. His recent public comments include:

  • On June 30, he made a sexual remarkregarding GREY2K USA Board President and General Counsel Christine Dorchak.
  • He has repeatedly mocked Christine over a near-fatal accident she suffered in 1992 when she was struck by a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Rail Car while walking her dog. For example on June 6 he referred to her as "the Trolley wreck."
  • On July 15 he suggested a proposed bill to make it nearly impossible for citizen groupsto submit public information requests. This would decrease government transparency and is at odds with the Administration of Governor Jan Brewer.
  • On July 13 he suggested that anonymous tips of greyhound cruelty should not be reportedto the authorities.

Based on this pattern of demeaning public comments, it's clear that Mr. Goree is not fit for public office.

Please read today's Arizona Republic story and then join me today in asking Governor to remove this rogue commissioner. First, call Governor Brewer at 602-542-4331 (then press 4). Then, also send her a polite e-mail asking that Mr. Goree be removed. Finally, please sign and share our petition going to Governor Brewer.

The greyhounds deserve regulators who are fair and impartial. Together, we can help give them a voicein this area.

Sincerely,

Carey

END DOG RACING ON MACAU
4 years ago

The peninsula of Macau is home to a single dog track called the Canidrome. At the Canidrome, nearly 400 greyhounds are put to death every year. Brooklyn is one of those dogs.

Brooklyn is four-years-old and he is a white, red and fawn greyhound.  Unfortunately, he  has been injured and his immediate future is now very uncertain.
