Greyhound – From the cradle to the grave.
This video was made by Stephen O’Malley, a student of the second year of a degree in Multimedia Design and Programming Institute LIT (Limerick Institute of Technology), in association with Limerick Animal Welfare and shows exactly what happens to the puppies greyhound.
It is a moving account of the life journey of one animal, which documents the extremely short and sad life of a competitive greyhound.
The movie is shown though the eyes of the greyhound, which makes it both compelling and moving at the same time.
the main ‘actress’ in the film is former racer Pam, who was rehomed in Italy via Pet Levrieri. The pups in the film were rehomed in the UK, so they are all safe.
Music by acclaimed Irish singer songwriter Paddy Casey.
The film was intended for awareness-raising programs in schools of all grades on the cruelty of greyhound racing
It was delivered by friends of LAW in October 2013. Seven years have passed, but the film still remains sadly current, as shown in the programme RTÉ Investigates Greyhounds Running For Their Lives June 2019.
