Friends:

For years, GREY2K USA has tried to obtain greyhound injury reports for the Tri-State Racetrack in Cross Lanes, West Virginia. During that time, we have been repeatedly denied injury data from state officials. Until now.

According to newly-obtained state records, at least 3,208 greyhound injuries have been reported at this track since 2005, and nearly 200 dogs have died. Further, itís likely that the actual number of injuries is even higher, as the state still refuses to produce several months of records.

This is a staggering and sad example of the cruelty of greyhound racing. While we have documented severe injury problems at other dog tracks in the past, this is the most severe injury problem we have discovered to date.

Please watch the video we are releasing today, which includes several of the fatal injuries sustained by greyhounds at Tri-State Racetrack in recent years. Also, read the groundbreaking story on this development that was published on the front page today in the Charleston Daily Mail.

Then, please forward this e-mail to everyone you know. We cannot help the greyhounds that have already died at this track, but we can make sure that the world knows about their suffering, and work toward aday when greyhound racing ends at thisterrible racing facility.
