End of the line for Greyhound Stadium

18 August 2008

Walthamstow stadium hosted its last race on Saturday after failing to secure financial backing. The iconic North London dog track will be demolished to make way for a housing development. Paivi Vahvelainen, League Greyhound Campaigner said: ‘Whilst much sentiment has been expressed over the closing of this building, anyone who cares about the welfare of the dogs must be relived that so many animals will be spared an uncertain future in a sport that can treat them so poorly and that refuses to accept regulation.’
