Assurances on export of greyhounds to China

The Irish Greyhound Board may repatriate retired Irish greyhounds from China to Europe in an effort to appease concerns by animal welfare activists over a multimillion-euro proposal to develop a racing industry in China.

ARTICLE

Footnote: 

A quote in The Sunday Times earlier this year perhaps best demonstrates the IGB’s concern for the dog’s welfare: “We do not have any influence on the welfare standards adopted in other countries, and these matters are more appropriately dealt with by the country’s own legislative system.”
