Animal welfare groups downplay involvement with Stow racing bid
Two animal welfare organisations have said they do not support the reopening of Walthamstow Stadium as a dog racing venue – following claims they were working on such proposals.
The idea on the part of the Dogs Trust that one can “ensure the cradle to grave health and welfare of the dogs that train or race at the track” is of course nonsense. Equally ridiculous is the notion held by LACS that an oval greyhound track can be made safe for dogs participating on it (stated by LACS in a recent email). AFG wonder if the interests of the greyhounds are best served when guidance on welfare is sought from groups that are clearly lacking a comprehensive understanding of such matters. That said what has welfare got to do with Morton seeking dialogue with either group?
