Key points to make:

Greyhound racing is a dying industry worldwide
Thousands of greyhounds suffer serious injuries and some also die while racing
Many healthy dogs are also killed once their usefulness ends
When not racing, greyhounds are confined in small cages for at least 20 hours a day
The breeding of greyhounds will contribute to the challenge of placing homeless animals
Greyhound racing is illegal in South Africa and should remain so
