A number of recent articles in both the national and local media exposing the cruel aspects of greyhound racing has fuelled heated online debates with owners and trainers attempting to protect the image of their ‘sport’.
Unable to disprove the overwhelming evidence of the inherent cruelty and to divert attention away from the real issues of welfare, many supporters of greyhound racing have knowingly made false claims and shamefully lied, endeavouring to discredit greyhound protection groups.
Unsubstantiated accusations such as, “there have been the odd atrocities committed by several antis, especially those which have included acts of physical abuse on members of the public at entrances to certain greyhound stadia” has only served to highlight the industry’s inability to defend their cruelty.
Moreover, a statement claiming “anti-greyhound groups are no more than small scale terrorist groups many are on police watch lists and have been arrested for crimes including assault, bomb-making etc” must surely have been made in desperation when faced with the damning indisputable evidence against the industry.
Within the confines and safety of pro racing forums, the malicious verbal attacks on greyhound protection groups are far worse.
A topic started in ‘Memory of Valentina’ on Kamas Cave RGT forum prompted a swift ban of the poster, leaving the thread open to discussion, further inviting comments from those in support of the industry.
Without showing any level of compassion for Valentina and in a disgusting attempt to justify the ban – an owner of racing greyhounds who also runs a greyhound rescue stated “Am sure you’re aware of ‘dirty tricks’ and it is rumoured that certain extremist anti-racing groups are now using dead greyhounds and cutting off their ears then dumping them in the hope they’ll be found and used against the sport”
Greyhoundscene – a pro racing forum - administrated by Dave Smith tops the charts for silencing the ‘greyhounds voice’ by ridiculing those who show concern for the greyhound’s welfare and banning forum members for daring to question his integrity.
At every opportunity Mr Smith will publicly claim greyhound protection groups are nothing more than a scam – using the plight of the greyhounds to emotionally blackmail the public into parting with their money.
How bizarre then that Mr Smith in 1997 made the front page of the Sun newspaper for conning – amongst many others – Cambridge United football team he was in a position to takeover the club - using his 12 year old son as an accomplice.
To this day Mr Smith, or Mr Scamalot as the Sun nicknamed him, frequently places himself in a position of authority, qualifying himself to speak on behalf of thousands of owners and trainers, by publicly claiming “I am the admin of the world’s largest greyhound forum (7000 members)” and invites readers to “take a look at how caring our members are”
Needless to say – Mr Smith fails to mention the forum is run in association with his highly commercial business of buying and selling racing greyhounds and arranging cheap and ‘cost effective’ syndicates.
