You know what? I am starting to feel like I am yelling at a hurricane when it comes to fighting the greyhound racing industry here in the UK. Two days ago was the last straw for me.

For two days, we have experienced some of the worst stormy weather of the year. Pippa is my rescued greyhound and she was panicking because of how loud the thunder was getting, and I could completely feel for her considering that I am somewhat of a brontophobic myself. It just so happened that during these torrential downpours and almost deafening claps of thunder, Newcastle racing stadium had the brilliant idea of hosting a greyhound race. Guess what happened next? SOME OF THE GREYHOUNDS CRASHED! Now why does that not surprise me?

See it here for yourself!

So you know what I'm going to do now? I am keeping this image on my main profile until greyhound racing is COMPLETELY OUTLAWED in the UK! If the tracks can't even regulate themselves properly and make sure the dogs are healthy and happy, then they need to be shut down! I may move the position of this image around the profile a few times, but it's still staying up there.

Also, to anyone who is going to argue with me over greyhound racing being 'safe' and 'humane' or that 'the dogs like to race,' first, I give you the animation I made which is based on several true stories and statistics of greyhound racing and its consequences in the UK.

Then, I am going to give links to several websites which give the facts about the whole situation and where you can learn more about the racing industry and what it is really like.

And do you want to see something REALLY horrifying? Hows about yet ANOTHER case, a very recent one at that, of a dog having its ears hacked off to remove the tattoos.

Also, if you support the welfare of greyhounds, feel free to download this and use this in internet campaigns, for Facebook banners or wherever. Just don't steal it and claim it as your own drawing.

Apologies for sounding so infuriated in this comments section, but this is something that makes my blood boil.
