But they don't seem to mind that other industries kill EVERY animal they breed and people line up in the supermarket to buy the remains.
That just seems inconsistent and sightly hypocritical to me.
I'll give you that. it probably is hypocritical to eat meat while being outraged at the greyhound industry.
but that's a judgment against humans and their morality. it doesn't speak to the objective wrong in killing greyhounds. the reason for banning greyhound racing is to protect greyhounds from unnecessary harm. whether I or anyone else is a hypocrite doesn't change that. it's about the dogs, not us.
