Another dog welfare scandal
The spotlight among animal lovers will on the plight of the hares for the next three days (Saturday February 10th, 11th, and 12th) in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, but spare a thought for the greyhounds. Several have already been withdrawn from the “National Coursing Meeting” due to outbreak of a highly contagious infection in kennels in four different counties.
The animals have were found vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea. A vet confirmed it was an infection that could “spread like mad”. Some comments have appeared on internet greyhound chat forums like “Greyhound Nuts” but greyhound industry PR people are desperate to keep the whole thing quiet, lest panic spread on the eve of the big “showpiece” hare baiting session.
