ALARMING NEWS.. MIJAS Hipodromo starts galgo racing.
On the 16th June 2012 - 3 weeks after having seen a poster for a show with galgos on the front cover, which proved to be a "dog show" but unnerved me, alarm bells rung. On the 16th June 2012 the Equine Mijas race course opened its doors to "Galgo racing" opening at 10pm.
Quietly done to test the water. To see where it would lead to, they held their race. All done quietly, and with what I believe was little attendance. However, this breaches all we fight for on the galgo plight. It leads to abuse, abandonment, and hangings on galgos who are doomed not worthy. Black dealings behind the scenes and exchanging of galgos will be seen. Sold, dangerous and dark. Mijas, is an area known for tourism, for being cosmopolitan in that it is part of the costa del sol.
Having been to the race course to investigate, I "still" wait for the coordinator to call me back to my complaint. Well, its a good job I know what they are like. Moving from there to the mayors office, I state the complaint. With concerns rising to what the future entails we push on. Peticions running, asociations joining together, and its here we must not stop.
In this area we do not have galgo abandonment, however should this begin I expect to see galgos hanging in the Mijas mountains very soon! For this reason, the sure fact it brings abuse known worldwide for the racing traumas, it has to stop.
PLEASE sign the peticion, PLEASE write to complain, contact all Greyhound rescue groups, press links, and aside the Federations of galgueros, the Junta, the politicians, the race course in Mijas must be made aware that they are beckoning abuse by allowing this.
We need you, the galgos need you... its not enough for those who can that spain is over run with galgos abandoned, its expandig the abuse if they continue to come to Mijas under these circunstances.
THIS MUST BE STOPPED!
