WE WON

Uh oh... looks like there are more people who care about animals than you would like! I guess only the people who are against the "animal extremists" comment on the forums regarding anti-animal cruelty (with the exception of the 3 or so people who take time out of their day to defend the cause).

Anyway, WE STILL WON so suck it up (Jassy, Kim, and the other hard-heads)

Come on people, PEDA members are a bunch of crack pots who should put their efforts into saving people. Don't get me wrong, I love animals and don't believe they should be beaten or mistreated but we are talking about racing not dog fighting. Why don't we outlaw marathon races also because a human can be injured while running. What a bunch of morons.
... and its peTa - people for the ethical treatment of animals.

AS I posted my opinion on this subject, perhaps I was spiteful towards mean and rude posters. I did however vote for the dogs. I used to go to the racetrack when I was younger(greenmountain). Friends of mine who worked there would tell us which dog to pick(discreetly). They always knew which one would win the race because they would not feed the dog and rattle his cage at night with a fake rabbit to 'amp' him up. That is just mean and wrong. So apologies for rude posts to rude posters. But I did vote for the dogs and I'm glad you won.

The only reason they won is because the people of Mass are tired of thier tax money supplimenting the tracks.

"it's not like they're making them fight one another... they're racing, like conditioned athletes of the canine olympics.they're not harvested for food... "
Oh please, conditioned for whom??? And for what?? It's 2008 now, time to find another form of human pleasure other than deriving pleasure from the neglect and abuse of an animal who depends on human beings for survival.

Maybe we could legalize pit bull fighting too. I am guessing they are treated just as good. Please....

They should replace greyhound raceing with live "bums fighting". Remember that vidio? Some kid made a million bucks before cry baby lunatics stopped sales of this great video.

and when the number of greyhounds keep dwindling because nobody wants to breed or feed them anymore-until they eventually die out-are you going to have a big party celebrating your sucess?

Sassy , What a stupid answer. When they won't be fed anymore and will die out, then celebrate. C'mon will you get real. We are COMMITTED to phasing out greyhound racing in a responsible way and the protection of Greyhounds is our number one mission before and after the tracks close. So stay secluded in NY and end your comments that have no basis or facts. Respond when you have FACTS/KNOWLEDGE/OR an answer that would be worth my time to responsd back to you. It's people like you who have NO CLUE.

Dude! You seriously think marathon runners should be compared to the running of grey hounds??? People have a choice to run because they enjoy it! These animals have NO choice! and it's cruel! and abusive! wake up! I can't believe how ridiculous you are

There are a 100 things more important going on right now than worring if the dogs want to run. There are people killing and beating children and your worried about the dogs, DUDE your the ridiculous one.
