Greyhound Victory as Belle Vue Stadium Announces Closure ๐Ÿ‘‰ End Greyhound Racing!

Greyhound racing is an organized, competitive sport where greyhounds are raced around a track. There are two forms of greyhound racing, track racing and coursing. It was very popular in Britain until the 1960s, and it was at this time when attitudes were becoming more liberal. During this time there was increased exposure of poor animal welfare in dog racing. This exposure began to tarnish the reputation of greyhound racing serving only to increase its decline.

Almost a decade ago, an investigation by national newspapers revealed that once greyhounds were no longer able to make money for their owners, they were being killed and dumped. Another report into the welfare issues relating to greyhounds in England revealed the terrible conditions they were in.

They can be kept for long periods of time in kennels and often alone. Intensive racing and training results in injuries, including broken toes, torn muscles and soreness. Furthermore, racing dogs suffer from drug abuse, with many greyhounds testing positive for class A drugs. Belle Vue Greyhound Stadium in Manchester is believed to be the biggest and oldest dog track in the country.

A statement was recently issued which confirmed the Belle Vue greyhound stadium will close permanently, it’s been confirmed. They said there was ‘no longer a business case to support the ongoing operation of the stadium’ and the national coronavirus lockdown ‘has had a particularly negative effect on Belle Vue. The stadium relies heavily on attendance, catering and hospitality and is now unable to sustain costs. This is good news for the greyhounds of the North West, with Belle Vue being the last track to close in that part of England.
