Greyhounds Are Dogs not Farm Animals Change the Law in Ireland

Following the documentary shown in Ireland where greyhounds are slaughtered in knackeries, shot, brutalized and sent to countries such as China & Pakistan where they can be tortured and boiled alive for meat many members of the general public have asked how are these owners not being prosecuted and why is 16 million of taxpayers money being put into the industry - one of the reasons is because in Ireland A GREYHOUND IS NOT CLASSIFIED AS A DOG BUT A FARM ANIMAL - while that in no way makes it okay for farm animals to be brutalized it does give the industry a loophole to escape from the laws that govern domestic pets such as dogs. This needs to be changed, a greyhound is a dog PERIOD.
