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.

Well, what do they expect will happen when they feed 4D meat to the dogs? This is meat that is filled with deadly pathogens. This is just another example of the racing industry putting dollars before the well being of the animals which they exploit. May the people who run the racing industry be forced to consume 4 D meat.
