Abstract

Though scientists and scholars dispute the origin of the greyhound because it is mentioned throughout time and across many cultures, what can be agreed upon is that these dogs have consistently been used as coursing dogs. Now, after hundreds of years, greyhounds have been bred into the ultimate sprinting dog for a different purpose: racing. This presentation provides an in-depth look at the ethics and logistics of American greyhound racing, from 1919 to current day.
