Investigate Cocaine Use at Florida Dog Tracks

    1. Petition by

      GREY2K USA Worldwide

Over the weekend, WFTV TV News reported that seven greyhounds recently tested positive for cocaine at Daytona Beach Kennel Club.

Incredibly, when the TV station went to the track and interviewed a local greyhound gambler named James Howell, he said he was not at all surprised. "It’s kind of disappointing that they do it, but it seems that is the nature of the dog racing."

Help stop this cruelty by signing the petition below. Visit GREY2KUSA.org for more information and other ways to help.
