IN response to Catherine O’Brien’s letter regarding the exportation of greyhounds to China I would like to add some facts that the animal rights/welfare organisations seem to neglect.
The greyhounds which will be exported to China will be owned by the Irish Greyhound Board, these greyhounds will be cared for by Irish trainers and Irish kennel hands who will travel with the greyhounds. The greyhounds will be looked after by Irish people during their racing careers, ensuring Irish standards of care which are world class.
It would be negligent in the extreme for the IGB not to grasp this opportunity with both hands to ensure the continued health of the Irish greyhound industry.
