Six greyhounds perish at Wisconsin track
Six racing greyhounds have died since August at the Dairyland Greyhound Track in Kenosha, Wisconsin, including two last weekend.
Two state agencies — the state Division of Gaming and the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection — are investigating, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Four of the six dogs bled to death, according to state records. A food-borne illness is one possibility investigator are looking at.
The state probe comes as Dairyland officials weigh whether to close the track for good. The track lost $3.4 million last year, and has seen attendance drop 19% so far this year.
