This includes 41 injuries and 12 deaths last year.

ACTION ALERT

Don’t attend greyhound races or fundraisers/hen parties/office parties held at greyhound tracks.

Join us in demanding an end to the government’s massive grants to the greyhound industry – €16.8 million for 2019, bringing to over a quarter of a billion euros the amount handed over since 2001. Contact Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe now.

REPORTED GREYHOUND INJURIES AND DEATHS AT IRISH TRACKS

At tracks around Ireland in the past four years, 1,559 greyhounds suffered injuries and 506 were killed. The Irish Greyhound Board figures are based on “reported” injuries and deaths, suggesting that the actual number could be even higher. They do not include the greyhounds injured at tracks and later killed elsewhere, or the thousands of greyhounds who go missing each year – presumed killed when found to be too slow to win races.

2018: 353 Injuries. 121 Deaths

2017: 357 Injuries. 124 Deaths

2016: 427 Injuries. 139 Deaths

2015: 422 Injuries. 122 Deaths
