I am sick, absolutely sick, of excuses for humanity who abuse greyhounds.
That was a hard sentence to write, because the temptation to add numerous expletives was overwhelming. But it wouldn't have done any good.
The greyhound in question, a beautiful two-year-old bitch was so badly beaten that she has had to have months of expensive veterinary care. And the good people who are looking after her have to go on Ebay to try to raise funds for the cost.

If you can bung a fiver into the pot, so much the better. But it shouldn't be necessary, it really shouldn't. The 'people' who caused this suffering should be made to pay, and in an ideal world they should also be chucked in jail for a very long time. Alas, even if they're caught it'll be the usual case of a ten bob fine and 'don't do it again'.
Civilised society? I think not.
