A National Greyhound Protection Agency is calling it one of the worst cases of neglect they've ever seen. And it cost an Escambia County woman her license to own and operate a Kennel at the Pensacola Greyhound Track.

Gee, I was so surprised that Escambia County refused to investigate. It would have meant actually doing the job they get paid for, a precedent that no one wanted to set. I would not be surprised if she turns up at another track. Florida regulators are notoriously lax.

For some reason, this doesn't surprise me. People who sincerely care about dogs don't breed them to chase around a track, looking emaciated, while tourists, bored snowbirds and other members of society's sketchiest characters place bets on them. I'm pretty sure animal welfare doesn't exactly fit into the equation. Thanks for posting.
