Greyhound racing’s dark side is further exposed

Another story involving minimal oversight in greyhound racing and lax regulations and illegal drugs is exposing more about the industry.

This time, WPTV out of West Palm Beach in Florida has the story of a greyhound trainer whose dogs tested positive for cocaine.

An investigation by the news outlet finds Florida’s Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering had failed to act resolved about 400 complaints against individuals who work at the state’s tracks.

So it’s bad enough the state agency that is supposed to oversee the greyhound racing industry is dragging its feet. But it is troubling in and of itself to hear that 400 complaints have been filed in one state.

When will the legislature in Florida and in the handful of other racing states finally see the light and ban greyhound racing immediately?
