Walthamstow Racing Track Closes, Greyhounds Celebrate

Being completely against animal use in sports, I was stoked to read that London’s Walthamstow Stadium, which was ground for greyhound racing for seventy-five years, closed on Saturday. Several causes were cited, among them pressures from the animal rights community.

“I’m sick as a pig. It’s a formidable shame. It is to Walthamstow what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris,” said owner Barrie Clegg. Yeah, well–does the Eiffel Tower account for overbreeding, dogs running until they are sick or being caged or euthanized because they’re not fast enough? I sincerely doubt it.

Past celeb visitors, such as Lana Turner and Brad Pitt, as well as David Beckham, who worked at the stadium as a teenager, might be sad to see it go (or might not). I, for one, am hoping it’s one step closer to ending greyhound racing for good.
