Sled Dog Cull Traumatizes Worker
"The worker describes chasing after a dog that survived a shot to the face: "Although she had the left side of her cheek blown off and her eye hanging out, he was unable to catch her." According to the claim, the dogs panicked as they watched their compatriots being killed, and attacked the worker as he finished his job. At one point during the slaughter, he ran out of ammunition and had to kill an aggressive dog with a knife... The dogs were killed because of a "slow winter season" after the Winter Olympics." http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&source=we ... bmUISvSx9AYOU WOULDN'T WISH IT ON A DOG

Dog racing is off-limits to the Arizona legislature. They have been bought off for years. There's no prospect of change.
There are no laws holding dog owners and trainers to any real standard of civilized behavior.
McGaughey is now the most prominent man in the Arizona greyhound-racing industry since John Harvey Adamson, also a dog trainer, placed a dynamite charge under Don Bolles' car.
To those uninitiated in the wondrous world of Arizona crime cum politics, Bolles was an Arizona Republic reporter who made the mistake of writing stories critical of the powers that run dog racing.
They were bursting with indignation over McGaughey's shooting of more than 100 greyhounds who were no longer able to win races for him. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/s ... ca&strip=1
