Kids’s playground fundraiser at track where greyhound CRIED OUT IN AGONY!

Kids’s playground fundraiser at track where greyhound CRIED OUT IN AGONY!

 

 

(Full and integral post)

 
A fundraiser for a children’s playground is to be held at a greyhound track where a dog could be heard crying out in agony earlier this year.

The “Community Playground for Clarinbridge” group has announced a “fantastic community fund raising night” at Galway stadium – one of the worst tracks in Ireland for injuries and deaths. https://www.igb.ie/talking-dogs/combo-may-prevail-on-clarinbridge-fundraising-friday-at-galway/

In the past three and a half years alone at the Galway track, 80 greyhounds suffered injuries and 21 were killed. Nationwide, during the same period, 1,369 greyhounds were injured and 438 were killed by track vets.

One of the many victims at Galway track was 1-year-old “Ballycastle Val” who collided with another greyhound and tumbled at the beginning of what was to be her first and final race.

As the 5th January 2018 race continued, her cries rang out around the stadium and are clearly audible in the Irish Greyhound Board’s race footage – https://www.igb.ie/videos/videos/?raceid=GLY_2018_01_05_03

ICABS has brought this sickening footage, along with the dog death statistics, to the attention of Clarinbridge community group. The group’s overall playground fund target is €120,000 – less than a third of the €307,692 of taxpayers’ money the dying greyhound industry gets every single week of the year from the government (totalling €16 million per annum).

ACTION ALERT

Join us in contacting the “Community Playground for Clarinbridge” group and urging them to stop fundraising at a greyhound track where animals suffer and die.

Say NO to the greyhound industry – don’t attend races or fund-raisers held at greyhound tracks (these are a significant source of funding for the greyhound industry). Distribute our “6 reasons to say NO to greyhound racing” leaflet outside greyhound tracks to encourage people to show compassion and boycott greyhound racing. You can download the leaflet at http://www.banbloodsports.com/ln170616.htm or order copies by emailing [email protected] Encourage your local animal protection groups to join calls for an end to greyhound racing, given the cruelty and killing involved.

The cruel and crumbling greyhound industry has received nearly a quarter of a billion euros of taxpayers’ money since 2001 (including €16 million for 2018). Urge Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe to end funding to the greyhound industry and instead direct the money to charities, community groups, animal rescue centres and other deserving causes. Email “Stop funding the cruel greyhound industry” to [email protected], [email protected], [email protected].ie, [email protected]

Facebook: destroyed for a broken leg!

Facebook: destroyed for a broken leg!

 

(Full and integral post)

“Facebook” was the first greyhound death reported after state officials started tracking deaths in 2013.
Since then, 483 greyhound deaths have been reported.

Facebook was born on October 2, 2010.

He had two brothers and five sisters.
When he was 18 months old, Facebook was shipped to Abilene Kansas, so he could be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
He was then hauled to Florida, where he would go on to race 59 times.

On the evening of May 31, 2013, Facebook suffered a broken leg during a race at Daytona Beach Kennel Club.

According to state records, the greyhound “fell causing a compound fracture.” Rather than be given to an adoption group, Facebook was destroyed by the track veterinarian.
 

Facebook was two years old when he died.

Off to the races: Supreme Court clears dog racing-ban for ballot

 

The Florida Supreme Court on Friday ordered a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban betting on live greyhound racing back on the ballot, reversing a lower-court judge.

Now, if approved by at least 60 percent of voters in November, the measure could sound the death knell of the state’s 87-year-old greyhound industry. In Florida, live dog racing is still conducted at 11 tracks.

The court, in a 6-1 decision, overturned a previous order by Circuit Judge Karen Gievers, who ruled that Amendment 13’s ballot title and summary would mislead voters, calling it “outright ‘trickeration.’ ” Justice Peggy A. Quince dissented.

The majority made three main findings:

— The amendment’s language saying “humane treatment of animals would become a fundamental value of the people of Florida” …“does not have any independent legal significance” and ‘its omission from the ballot summary does not render the ballot language clearly and conclusively defective.”

— The ballot text itself does not “mislead voters about the effects Amendment 13 would have on other forms of gaming” – that is, none – because “a reasonable voter would understand” that other kinds of gambling like cards and slots “will continue without material change.”

“If Amendment 13 is adopted, the only activities which will change in a material way are dog racing in Florida and wagering thereon, which will cease,” the opinion says.

— The ballot title, “Ends Dog Racing,” won’t “mislead voters to believe all wagering on dog racing would be prohibited, even though in-state betting on out-of-state (simulcast) racing would be allowed to continue” because “a reasonable voter would not interpret” it that way.

Jack Cory, spokesman and lobbyist for the Florida Greyhound Association, which filed the legal challenge, said his group was “disappointed in the decision today, but it is now on to the next race, ‘NO ON ALL in November!’ ”

The racing ban is one of eight amendments OK’d by the 2017-18 Constitution Revision Commission (CRC); 13 amendments in all have been set for the ballot. Amendment 13 was the first to be struck down by a trial court judge.

In a statement, Cory said the proposed constitutional change was made from “false and misleading information,” mentioning what he called the creation of “freestanding casinos” — a point the majority refuted, however. “This is the reason that you should not put issues like this into the Florida Constitution.”

Quince said in a short dissent that “there is no reasonable way for a voter to know whether, by voting yes for this amendment, they are also voting to either suspend or expand” other gambling.

“… Amendment 13 would waive an important condition of licensure for operators of card rooms and slot machines whose licenses arose out of their pari-mutuel dog racing permits,” she wrote.

Pari-mutuels in Florida usually are required to continue running live dog or horse races to have slots and card games that make those facilities more money. A move afoot called “decoupling,” removing the live racing requirement, has failed in the Legislature in recent years.

The Protect Dogs-Yes on 13 campaign, which is promoting passage of the amendment, said in a statement the challenge “was a desperate attempt to prevent voters from having a voice on whether greyhound confinement and deaths should continue.”

The campaign has bipartisan support from Republicans — Attorney General Pam Bondi and  Congressman Matt Gaetz — and Democrats — state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith and House District 47 candidate Anna Eskamani, to name a few.

“This is a major victory for Florida’s greyhounds and as an animal lover, I am absolutely elated by the court’s ruling,” Eskamani said in a text message. “I have no doubt that Floridians will overwhelmingly support Amendment 13 and end the cruel industry of greyhound racing in our state.”

The challenge “was filed because greyhound breeders know that when Amendment 13 appears on the ballot, Floridians will vote ‘yes’ for the dogs,” the campaign added. “Florida has a proud tradition of leading on animal welfare, and we are confident Amendment 13 will pass in November.”

When a broken leg is a DEATH sentence!

When a broken leg is a DEATH sentence!

In May of 2015 Farloe Cat was shipped to Palm Beach Kennel Club.

She lived in a cage at the track kennel compound, and raced more than fifty times over the next seven months.

Farloe won a few races, but her luck finally ran out on a cloudy afternoon in late December.

According to a state investigative report she collided with another greyhound during a race and fell, breaking a front leg.

Farloe was taken to the track vet, who later said she had an “open fracture” and “exposed shattered bone.”

The track vet called Farloe’s owner, who ordered that she be destroyed.

 

Farloe never had a family, or a permanent loving home.

She was just two years old when she died.
