Group alleges greyhounds being trained with live rabbits

LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) – Two U.S. representatives have introduced legislation that
would ban greyhound racing in the U.S. The bill introduced Wednesday comes after
a group that has fought against dog racing said it has videos showing racing
greyhounds being trained with live rabbits in at least three Midwestern states.
The group, GREY2K USA, sent videos of the live lure training to officials in
Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, where it says an animal rights investigator shot the
footage this year. The videos also were sent to Iowa, Arkansas, Florida and West
Virginia, states where GREY2K says the dogs were bred, where they raced or where
their owners were licensed.
