We the undersigned ask the Councillors of Walthamstow to NOT see the return of greyhound racing at Walthamstow as an option for the derelict 'Stow' site.We call on the council to be aware of the inherent abuse greyhounds suffer in order to sustain greyhound racing.Greyhound racing is responsible for the abuse and deaths of tens of thousands of greyhounds each year in the UK.Only a MINORITY make it to a fulfilling life of retirement, being homed through the hard work of rescues, surviving on funds raised by the public.The greyhounds making 'the grade' and going on to endure a racing 'career' face high risks of injuries on the race track resulting in young greyhounds being killed, be it major or even minor.
