Less than an hour
ago, the Arizona House of Representatives voted 54–5 in support of a bill to reduce greyhound racing at Tucson Greyhound Park (TGP). SB 1273 is the beginning of the end of dog racing in Arizona!
While racing, greyhounds face the risk of serious injury. According to state records, between January 2007 and November 2009, nearly 1,000 greyhound injuries were reported at TGP and the now-closed Phoenix Greyhound Park. The most common injury was a broken leg, and other reported injuries included fractures, sprains, dislocations, muscle tears and strains, lacerations, a cracked skull, broken backs, heat stroke, puncture wounds and paralysis. To learn more, see our full report and video.
We will let you know when SB 1273 reaches Governor Jan Brewer's desk. We should all ask for her signature at that time.
To support these continuing efforts, I hope you will make a donation to GREY2K USA and also consider ordering Spring flowers from our friends at Flower Power. Through April 27, this wonderful company will donate 50% of every order placed right back to GREY2K USA!
