C.A.G.E. (Coventry Against Greyhound Exploitation) PEACEFUL PROTEST, COVENTRY GREYHOUND STADIUM 16.11.2013
Another very successful demo with the usual pathetically low number of people going in.
80 cars (and only cars!) averaging 2 people per vehicle. Sometimes we have to wait 5 minutes before a car arrives.
We gave out leaflets to 38 of the cars.
Sunday racing has now finished at the Stadium and Wednesday night racing has been moved to Mondays in a vain effort to ‘find’ an evening that appeals to the punters.
They have now tried EVERY night of the week and none are working for them!
Mondays and Tuesdays average 50 cars per meeting and most Saturdays are like last night, with about 80-90.
All in all, re-opening this Track has been a total failure. Hopefully Harry Findley will soon get fed-up with throwing his money away, end the dog-racing and turn his hand to some more profitable non animal-abusing enterprise.
