When the headline – “Iowans divided on future of greyhound racing” – popped up on the Pack News Wire this morning, I had a sinking feeling. Why would support for dog racing be on par with those who support animal welfare?
But then I read the Des Moines Register article. While the numbers are far from where they should be, I wouldn’t use the phrase “divided” to describe the results. The anti-dog racing side won the poll – 50 to 33 percent. In an election, this would be considered a huge win for Candidate Compassion.
The bad news comes in the fact that only 50 percent support animal welfare in this poll. Apparently, a lot of people are not well-informed on the issue. Must …. keep … focusing … on … education.
The battle goes on.
