Greyhound tests cocaine positive at Birmingham – contact Governor Riley now!
Based on information provided by GREY2K USA, the Birmingham News has reported that a trainer was fined when one of his dogs tested cocaine-positive.
Earlier this month, we wrote to the Governor’s Task Force with information about two racing greyhounds testing cocaine positive. We asked that the Task Force launch a formal investigation into the following incidents:
- On or about December 23, 2009 a greyhound named Kiowa Fly Lucia tested positive for cocaine at Mobile County Greyhound Park.
- On or about November 11, 2009 a greyhound under the control of an individual named Robert E. Trow tested positive for cocaine at the Birmingham Racecourse.
Please read the story and then please do two things: post a helpful comment on the blog following the story and then join us in contacting Governor Riley. Tell him that dog racing is cruel and inhumane and should end!
