Greyhounds are deprived of care

As a lover of man's best friend, and especially greyhounds, I take issue with the opinions expressed in an article on the exclusion of the greyhound industry in the new Dog Breeding Bill ('Proposed Gormley Bill has industry on alert', Irish Independent, March 2).

According to this article, the greyhound industry is strictly governed by the 1958 Act, and should be precluded from any further regulation.

Throughout this country many greyhounds are kept in horrendous conditions, confined to sheds and barns, without light, heating, proper bedding and care.
