Greyhound Watch have an excellent article published in the South Yorkshire Star, highlighting the appalling injury and euthanasia record of Owlerton Stadium in Sheffield.

The stadium’s response consists of the usual defensive spin on welfare by  grossly overstating the numbers of greyhounds re-homed by the local RGT branch, Gosling Moor Farm. Gosling Moor Farm’s website states 160 greyhounds were re-homed during 2007 yet Dave Perry, assistant general manager to the stadium claims the branch have ‘provided a home for some 200 greyhounds each year’

The Star also ran a poll ‘Do you support greyhound racing?’ resulting in 59% voting ‘NO’ and  a surprising 41% voting ‘YES’.To view the Star article and the total lack of response from people supporting greyhound racing please click here
