Bill Steele offers to assist the cause of greyhound welfare
I REFER to a letter in the Racing Post, July 16, from Ms Annette Crosbie, President, League Against Cruel Sports.
Ms Crosbie mentioned the training of kennel and track staff to provide a recognised qualification in animal care with a greyhound speciality.
The recognised veterinary organisation mentioned, I suggest, could be the Society of Greyhound Veterinarians, which is in a unique position to offer such training.
The Society is, at present, putting together a training scheme for track veterinarians on compact disc and, once completed, this could be adapted with little effort to encompass the training of track and kennel staff.
Bill Steele, President, Society of Greyhound Veterinarians
