It is unbelievable that Greyhounds were exempt from anti-cruelty laws. This is the most absurd thing I have heard. it just shows that racing IS in fact a cruel 'sport' when the powers that be let this take place.

I'm so glad that somebody cares enough to get the truth out about how Greyhounds are treated. I'm proud to be a part of a WONDERFUL Greyhound adoption group where I live and currently have 2 fantastic Greyhounds, or should I say that 2 WONDERFUL Greyhounds have me wrapped around their paws! There may be a few "owners" at any given trac that "MIGHT" and I mean might, be good to the hard working Greyhounds that make them money, however for the most of them are treated horribly. I've seen hounds come to us, beaten,cut,burned,mal-nutritioned(yes, they're "supposed" to be slim, not ANEXORIC)timid and scared. If you want a "TRUE and FAITHFUL FRIEND" then "ADOPT A GREYHOUND AND SAVE A GREYT LIFE"!!! Now on to the response of "Mr." Childs, I do take offense that you call me(because I do read every article I can on related things) "gullible". What gives you the right to "assume" peoples intelligence? By the way, you do know what you get when you break the word assume up, the first 3 letters about says it all.

Your article is ABSOLUTELY incorrect and I challenge you to print the correct information. Onwers, trainers and other NHR&G licensed personnel HAVE NEVER been immune from criminal prosecution for cruelty to animals, in fact, just the opposite, they have been held to a much higher standard than the criminal guidelines set forth in RSA 644:8, as the NHPR&G Commission can require much more stringent regulations than the standard Cruelty guidelines. We also can move about the track without the necessity of search warrants and provide appropriate law enforcement personnel with information that otherwise would be very difficult to obtain. Also individuals involved can be dealt with IMMEDIATELY by Commission as opposed to waiting for the justice system to prosecute. Duel prosecutions for cruelty offenses are often persued by both the Commission and local law enforcement. You should get your facts straight before you put something like this article out for guillible people to believe. Please feel free to contact me if you want to print the truth. Thank you for allowing me to respond.

Wonderful news and about time too! When will people understand that racing dogs and horses is a cruel sport. Gambling is a sick habit that causes misery to thousands of humans and their loved ones. Yes greyhounds and horses love to run, in a field free not on an oval course that leaves them with massive injuries.

I'm glad they changed the law. Why would they have made a law that stated that cruelty laws didn't apply to track animals? My neighbours will be happy, they're part of a greyhound rescue organization.

This is awesome and a long time coming for the docile and gentle greyhounds forced to race for so long. They need protection.
