I am not someone who goes around complaining.
But I was furious earlier.
This is the complaint I sent in.
I have just watched the 6 pm news.
All about Boris Johnson becoming PM.
Then canvassing people at a Greyhound Racing Track !! on the hottest day of the year !!, when we are all told to keep our dogs in the cool and calm. So as not to distress them and you go and support this ?.
Have your people, who arrange these things, no idea of animal welfare ?
If they don't, perhaps they would like to look at an easy thing like Facebook that is full of advise to keep animals in the hot weather. Or a local vet.
Do they not realise that these dogs have to run for their lives, until they drop dead sometimes. Or are killed because they can't run fast enough.
I am appalled.
SHAME ON YOU BBC
Good work Wendy

Well done Wendy for taking the trouble to write that letter. I don't suppose for one minute that the organizer of that program even thought about those poor dogs. Shame on them for supporting that dreadful sport, even in an indirect way. I'm sure that you will let us know if you have any replies.
It might be an idea to put your letter up on FB as it might gather support for the BBC to take trouble with their research. I would certainly share it.
I am now a widow and live with my memories.
I did put it on my FB page Mo.
I also wrote to Boris Johnson as in his speech. He spoke about animal welfare.
So I thought I would strike while the iron was hot.
Not expecting anything to come of it. But hey ho worth a try.
It wasn't me suggested it, the other black cat owner!
Good idea though.
I suppose the BBC were going for a 'typical working class' image without thinking much about it.
