Cork Says Stop Sending Greyhounds to China

9 Jun


A “Cork Says Stop Sending Greyhounds to China” protest will take place this Saturday, 11th June 2016.

The peaceful protest will be held outside Curraheen Park Greyhound Track, Cork from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Demonstrators will call on the government to stop the exportation of Irish greyhounds to countries which do not have sufficient animal welfare protection, specifically Macau, China.

One of the Irish greyhounds exported to Macau earlier this year, last raced at Curraheen Park stadium. The dog, Two Stone Tadgh, finished second last in that race and is now being used for racing at the Canidrome – the “world’s deadliest racetrack” from where no dog gets out alive.

    Just wanted to say that I saw the protest this evening at ‘the Laurels’ Curraheen Park with lovely dogs in attendance too. It was fantastic. So heartening to see people that care about the vulnerable on this earth. You are all heroes! Good work!
