Greyhounds badly treated

Greyhounds badly treated

Madam --I am writing to commend Fiona O'Connell on her most accurate portrayal of life for the average greyhound in Ireland (Sunday Independent, May 27, 2012).

Whether it is throwing a cowering and frightened greyhound into a river to clean him, shooting and dumping dead greyhounds in a quarry or handing "slow greyhounds" into the pound condemning them to certain death, these activities sadly typify the attitude of far too many owners/breeders.
