Doping of dogs in the Irish greyhound industry
19 September 2017
RTE's "Claire Byrne Live" show (18 Sept 2017) has focused on the issue of dog doping in the Irish greyhound industry. On the programme, journalist Sharon Ni Bheoláin highlighted the range of prohibited drugs (including Cocaine) found in dogs at racing tracks and the related animal welfare concerns.
The Irish Government has handed over around a quarter of a billion euros to the greyhound industry since 2001, including €16 million for 2017.
