Update: City of Tucson officially bans the use of steriods for racing dogs
It’s great to know that sometimes science and those who are educated can win out over the uneducated. We’ve got too many elected officials across the country right now who have no more education in science and logic than a 3-year-old.
But at least in the case of greyhound racing and veterinary medicine, the Tucson City Council in Arizona is putting science and logic first. Last Wednesday night, the council engaged in a final vote to ban Tucson Greyhound Park from injecting steroid into the bodies of racing greyhounds within the city limits.
Track officials have been claiming they are injecting the dogs for birth control. With that sort of twisted logic, shoplifters could claim they are merely testing the capacity of their jackets and pants pockets.
