GAA: Stop club fundraisers at greyhound tracks

The GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) should act NOW to stop club fundraisers at greyhound tracks.

Numerous clubs (including junior clubs) have held fundraisers at tracks – gambling venues where dogs suffer injuries and die.

Given recent revelations about gambling addiction problems among GAA players, it is entirely inappropriate and irresponsible for GAA clubs to choose gambling venues as fundraising locations.

Allowing clubs to expose players to a gambling environment is at odds with the GAA’s stated concerns about the growing problem of gambling and it undermines efforts to educate players about gambling addiction.

The GAA should also consider the fact that the greyhound industry is inherently cruel and that those attending fundraisers at tracks may witness injured dogs writhing in agony and crying out in pain.

In the past three years alone, over a thousand dogs have suffered injuries at tracks around Ireland and 385 were killed by track vets.

In addition, an estimated 10,000 greyhounds go missing each year, presumed killed when found to be too slow to win races.

One Irish trainer remarked online: “I’ve seen dogs being shot. It has to be done as there’s too many of them to rehome.”

A former chairman of the Irish Greyhound Board admitted on Cork’s 96 FM that he believes it is “absolutely” okay for thousands of dogs to be killed and that racing couldn’t exist without the destruction of dogs.

Fundraisers at greyhound tracks are helping to keep the cruel greyhound industry afloat – the track takes a 30-40 per cent commission from ticket sales and also profits from gambling and food/drink sales on the night.

The cruel bloodsport of hare coursing also indirectly benefits – all greyhounds used in track racing are registered with the Irish Coursing Club and the registration fees help fund coursing activities.

In coursing, thousands of hares are snatched from the wild every year for use as live bait for greyhounds at coursing meetings. Hares are terrorised while desperately running for their lives and there are injuries and deaths due to maulings.

We are appealing to the GAA and its local clubs to show compassion for the animals and reject the cruel greyhound industry.

Le urla di un levriero, in agonia, presso lo Stadio di Galway

Le urla di un levriero, in agonia, presso lo Stadio di Galway

(Traduzione integrale del post)

 

 

 

Le grida di un levriero, in agonia, dopo una caduta durante una gara presso lo Stadio di Galway.

“Ballycastle Val”, una levriera di un anno di vita, entra in collisione con un altro levriero e cade, durante la sua prima ed ultima corsa…

In questo video dell’ IGB (Irish Greyhound Board’s race footage) dello scorso 5 Gennaio, durante la gara, risuonano i lamenti di Ballycastle Val.

 https://www.igb.ie/videos/videos/?raceid=GLY_2018_01_05_03S

 
Secondo il sito web dell’IGB, Ballycastle Val, si è infortunata durante la caduta e non ha terminato la gara.

Ad oggi, non ha più gareggiato in nessuna corsa.
 

E’ stata uccisa quel giorno allo stadio di Galway?



Negli ultimi tre anni, 385 greyhound hanno sofferto e sono morti sulle piste irlandesi.
 
Presso lo stadio di Galway, lo scorso anno, 24 greyhounds hanno subito lesioni e ben 10 sono stati “messi a dormire” dal veterinario presente sulle piste.
 
Dal 2015 ad oggi, 63 greyhound hanno subito infortuni in pista e ben 17 sono stati uccisi.

 
 
L’ Irish Council Against Blood Sports ha portato all’attenzione del ministro dell’Agricoltura, Mr.Michael Creed e all’attenzione di  Mr. Leo Varadkar questo video inquietante, come parte di un rinnovato appello per convincerli a smettere di sperperare milioni di Euro dei contribuenti a sostegno della crudele Industria del Greyhound Racing.
 
ICAB sta inoltre spingendo il pubblico a mostrare compassione per questi cani, e sta cercando inoltre di convincerli a non frequentare le piste.
 

ACTION ALERT

Dì NO al Settore delle corse dei levrieri – non partecipare alle gare o a raccolte di fondi che si svolgano nell’ambiente corse (queste sono una fonte significativa di finanziamento per l’industria dei levrieri).
 
Distribuisci il nostro volantino “6 motivi per dire NO al Greyhound Racing”  fuori dagli Stadi cercando di incoraggiare le persone a mostrare compassione e boicottare le corse.
Puoi scaricare il volantino a questo link http://www.banbloodsports.com/ln170616.htm oppure puoi ordinarne copie via e-mail, scrivendo a : [email protected]
 
L’industria del Greyhound Racing, crudele e fatiscente, ha ricevuto dal 2001 circa un quarto di miliardo di Euro proveniente dai contribuenti (inclusi i 16 milioni di Euro del 2018).
 
Sollecita: Taoiseach Leo Varadkar ed il Ministro delle finanze, Mr.Paschal Donohoe, a mettere fine ai finanziamenti all’Industria dei levrieri e esortali a destinare questo denaro alla beneficenza e ad altre cause meritevoli.
 
Manda una mail  con il seguente oggetto: “Smetti di finanziare l’industria crudele dei levrieri” a :

Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar
Dipartimento del Taoiseach,
Edifici governativi,

RAMA’S LAST JOURNEY

RAMA’S LAST JOURNEY

Rama won’t make it. Clinical tests have shown that the cancer has spread throughout her body, causing her pain and suffering.

In the next few days we will let her go because we do not want her to suffer anymore, and we believe that after a lifetime of exploitation she deserves to end her life with dignity.

We are very sad and we feel powerless in the face of this outcome. We had hoped that Rama would have a bit more time to finally enjoy life a bit, but we know that at least she has had the chance of a decent end, as a dog who will be remembered, and who won’t have to disappear in silence.

After being dumped by her galguero after 10 years of exploitation, she had the chance of experiencing a bit of decent life at the Protectora y Santuario Scooby and then later at the home of our associate member Monica Parenti, who alongside Monica Rombai took her in and cared for her with love and respect.

In the next few days, please spare a moment to send her a thought, a prayer or a farewell to accompany her on her final journey.
Thank you, on her behalf.

Check out this AMAZING photo!

 
This is Pixel.
She was rescued a year and a half ago by a wonderful woman in Canada.
Pixel ran three races but was discarded by the industry for being too stubborn after throwing her muzzle and refusing to chase- she showed them!

After being passed along to a few different foster homes, as well as one failed adoption, Pixel found her forever home with her current pawrents.

Now Pixel spends her weekends advocating against racing with MotorCity Greyhound Rescue at meet and greets.
She’s really living her best life after a few tough years.
Soon she will also be joined by a brother or sister from Candy Cane Rescue!

🌷🌷🌷

RIP Mendenhall 14/5/18 at Launceston Track.

 

Not even 2, this girl ran 6 times – wasn’t a winner, and was put down because she suffered a fractured left wrist.

Hardly life threatening, except in the greyhound racing industry.

Greyhounds housed in ‘unacceptable’ conditions at Cottage Kennels

Greyhounds housed in ‘unacceptable’ conditions at Cottage Kennels

25.4.2018 – Written By: Adam Everett Reporter
  DOGS were kept in ‘unacceptable’ conditions at greyhound kennels in Croft, a panel has heard. A Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons disciplinary hearing into the actions of vet Natalia Oakes found that dogs were housed in ‘unsuitable’ conditions at Cottage Kennels, based at Rough Farm on Winwick Lane. Ms Oakes received a formal warning from the RCVS after being found guilty of ‘disgraceful conduct’, with the veterinary surgeon having falsified welfare assessments at the greyhound racing kennels in August 2016. Shortly afterwards, Ms Oakes signed off forms stating that there were 55 greyhounds living in ‘acceptable’ conditions at Cottage Kennels. But the RCVS was told that ‘neither assertion’ was true, with a considerable amount more dogs housed on the premises and some kennels and facilities found to be ‘not in an acceptable condition’. The panel heard that Ms Oakes was aware that there were at least 80 greyhounds on the site and that ‘unsuitable kennels were being used to house dogs’. Ms Oakes herself described the conditions as ‘inadequate, makeshift and unsuitable’. But she ‘maintained throughout that everything she did was in the best interests of animal welfare’. She had signed the forms on the basis that Mr Eccles claimed that he planned to return around 30 dogs in the kennels who belonged to other people, or who had retired and would be rehomed. The RCVS panel said: “The respondent signed the form because she hoped to keep Mr Eccles on side, and in the hope that he would not change his mind in relation to the removing and rehousing of dogs from the kennels. “The committee considers that she allowed her passion for the welfare of the greyhounds that she was attempting to rescue to cloud her judgement. “The committee has no doubt that the respondent is completely dedicated to the welfare of animals and presents no future risk to animals. “For the reasons set out, the committee has decided that it will be sufficient for the respondent to be given a formal warning as to her future conduct.”           Link: http://www.warringtonguardian.co.uk/news/16179613.Dogs_housed_in____unacceptable____conditions_at_greyhound_racing_kennels/ Source: Warrington Guardian © All rights reserved
