Animal entertainment: Tradition or cruel sport?
Off to the races
The gates are up, and they're off - greyhounds chasing down a mechanical rabbit. That's what they were born to do, right? Running is actually just a small part of the dogs' lives. The League Against Cruel Sports estimates for 95 percent of the time, race dogs are shut in kennels. "Cruelty, drug abuse, injury, neglect and killing" - just a day in the life for these dogs, according to the league.
