Animals deserve to be treated as sentient beings, and this form of destruction is bound to cause unnecessary distress.

The use of a bolt gun is inhumane, causes pain and suffering and often doesn't kill the animal immediately. The fear these animals must feel when being handled and bolted breaks my heart. Injection in the only humane and compassionate way to put a creature to sleep. But honestly, the race dogs should be re-homed with rescue organizations where they can find them their forever homes. It makes no sense to kill a perfectly health animal. Also, I think there should be a export ban on greyhounds coming into the country to help curb the UK racing industry until it can be abolished.
