Sadness as greyhound found in River Foyle

On learning that the body of a greyhound has been found dumped in the River Foyle with mutilated ears, Steven Agnew MLA, leader of the Green Party said today, Wednesday 8 July,

“I am deeply saddened at the awful treatment of this greyhound and the fact that it was so callously dumped.

“I can only assume that its owner decided that it was of no further use and did not wish to keep it or rehome it.

“This is not acceptable.

“There needs to be more stringent regulation of the greyhound racing industry to ensure that owners, breeders and trainers take better responsibility for the dogs in their care.
