HUGE thanks to all who have signed and shared ... a small piece of GOOD NEWS already .... from Tweeting the story ... Warren Swords of the Irish Mail on Sunday (who also published the first report after Snip's destruction) has published a second article on Snip a couple of weeks ago and has told us the BBC have replied to him

Shows these internet sites can get results!

Just trying to get a copy and more info but if anyone has contacts or is in Eire maybe you could also try???

Nearly up ro 1000 signatures now but let's get many more to make the BBC really sit up and think, and hopefully put out a public statement that can enlighten millions of people around the World regarding the sad plight of racing greyhounds!

PLEASE keep signing and sharing thanks! rolleyes.gif

1262 signatures now but the greyhounds need many more to make the BBC sit up and take note ...

Please have a look at this petition to ask the BBC to tell the truth about Snip Nua's death (the greyhound in the 'Three Men go to Ireland' show who was destroyed before the programme went out!) and the fate of thousands of greyhounds like her (see info below)

PLEASE SIGN & SHARE, THANKS!
http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/snipnua

In early 2010 the BBC received many complaints after it featured a racing greyhound called Snip Nua in the popular TV show 'Three Men Go to Ireland'. The show was presented by Grif Rhys Jones, Rory McGrath and Dara O'Briain. Snip was owned by a syndicate of 16 wealthy members, among which comedian Dara O'Briain was one. What Dara and the BBC forgot to tell viewers was that Snip Nua had been destroyed by the time the show was broadcast.

Snip like many other racing greyhounds suffered a broken hock in what was to be her seventh and final race at Harold's Cross Dublin on the 14th December 2009.

Hock injuries are common in racing greyhounds and while the injuries are usually career ending they are almost always treatable. In the UK the Greyhound board of Great Britain sanctions the destruction of injured dogs on economic grounds (ie they are unsuitable to race following injury) and in other countries the destruction of such dogs is common practice. The Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has described the practice as 'tantamout to animal abuse'.

Earlier this year the BBC repeated the show and rather than admit what had happened they airbrushed all traces of this poor dog from the footage!!!

This is a one in a million opportunity to get the BBC to make a Public Statement and apology that could enlighten millions of people around the World regarding not only this sad and shameful story about the destruction of an innocent dog but also about the plight of thousands of racing greyhounds like her

Over 1230 signatures now but we need many more to make the BBC sit up and listen! They must show some integrity and show an unbiased image of greyhound racing and the reality for the dogs....

Please don't let the BBC mislead the British dog loving public ... please tell them that they must tell the truth!

Thanks smile.gif
