Animal welfare organisation Greyt Exploitations has launched a petition calling on Irish authorities to withdraw proposals which would effectively create a commercial greyhound racing industry in China.
Following discussions with a delegation of Chinese businessmen, Dick O’Sullivan – the former CEO of the Irish Greyhound Board – said that they had been approached to “design the tracks, the facilities, the kennels, provide the dogs and set up the control and integrity operation as well as the Tote."
Organisations such as the League and Greyt Exploitations have long campaigned for improved welfare and conditions for racing greyhounds in Britain and Ireland, and it is highly likely that conditions for the animals would be even worse in China, which has much less regulation.
The petition will be presented to the Irish authorities following a demonstration in Dublin city centre this Saturday 19th March. Please lend your support to this urgent campaign by signing the petition now.
