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.
