These dogs are literally running for their lives. Every year in Australia, around 10,000 greyhound puppies are bred in the hopes of gaining a new racer. But not all of these dogs are suited to a racing lifestyle. A greyhound racing facility admitted to killing up to 17,000 healthy dogs each year- including 7,000 pups and young dogs who didn't even make it to the tracks. It is not just cruel to the greyhounds but also the animals they use for live-bait. Live-baiting is where they use naturally hunted animals -like piglets, possums or rabbits- to encourage the dogs to run faster. It has also been filmed that some industries use ropes or other materials to send the dogs in an aggressive behaviour before they send the dogs to maul the bait.
