It takes a real LOW LIFE to do something like this. What scum. Why would anyone support Greyhound racing? Those that watch and bet on the races are just as guilty. The whole thing is SICK!

If it were up to me, greyhound racing (AND horse racing) would be banned altogether. Maybe this is a start in the right direction.

Ah if only they could trade places with the rabbits and be the ones chased and caught. That would be justice.

signed and noted....this cruelty has got to stop....why are humans killing all of our animals???? this is a sick form of cruelty.......I think greyhound racing is a ridiculous sport and should be stopped along with horse racing, bullfighting, dog fighting, and anything regarding animals performing for the ungodly humans to make a damn dollar......may you all rot in eye for an eye....your day is approaching!!!!!!

Live rabbits as training tools AND greyhound racing are both cruel practices and should be abolished.
Anything using animals to entertain people should be banned and those people with more greed than empathy who participate in such activities should be ostracized since they do not belong in a civilized society.

signed. Animal rights people have known about this for years and have tried to bring this info out, but people just never listened, or wanted to know. Wake up folks!!! Sporting events that use animals have some real dark sides to the fun. I'd rather see two idiots pummel each other in boxing than events that use animals for betting. At least the humans consented.

So terrible. These people should know that this is cruel. Bunnies are so cute and intelligent, I've had three and they've lived happy long lives. I can't see one being used as bait, mine have always been free around the house just like cats, they even used litter boxes.

Signed; thanks. The world is so casually, callously cruel. Do people not even care about the agony experienced by living beings with complex, intact nervous systems -- beings that can feel pain, confusion and terror? Do they not ever stop to compare it to their own pain, confusion and terror, which we all encounter?

Are they monsters -- or just stupid? Come to think of it, that was my biggest conundrum re george bush. And I still don't have a good answer.
