COMPLAINT TO FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF PARI-MUTUEL WAGERING
Nov 01, 2003 - Greyhound Protection League
November 1, 2003
Florida Department of Pari-Mutuel Wagering
Dear Mr. Logan,
The Greyhound Protection League has just received information that a Florida dog track has once again been the scene of horrible "mishaps" to greyhound racing dogs.
Here are the details as they were reported to our organization:
Naples Fort Meyers Greyhound Track, afternoon race card, November 1, 2003
* Sixth race
* Seventh race
It has been reported to us that no veterinarian was on duty or was available to relieve the pain and suffering of either of these greyhounds. The absence of a veterinarian during official races is a clear violation of Florida pari-mutuel regulations. Recalling the February 2000 death of a greyhound named Tune Me In, it is not the first time that the Naples track has failed to provide proper veterinary care for its injured race dogs.
The Greyhound Protection League is requesting that the Pari-Mutuel Division launch an immediate investigation into this situation.
Susan Netboy, President 888.842.4404
