Revealed: the man who killed 10,000 dogs
Daniel Foggo
THE secret slaughter of at least 10,000 racing greyhounds by one man has been exposed by an undercover investigation.

For the past 15 years David Smith, a builders merchant, has been killing healthy greyhounds no longer considered by their trainers to be fast enough to race. He buries them in a one-acre plot at the back of his home in Seaham, Co Durham.

1. I don't really like the death penalty, but I think it'd be appropriate
in this case.

3. Best thing to do is try to adopt from a grey hound rescue org.
They are great dogs if you have the space and money for them.

5. 10,000 dogs buried in an acre lot?
That is 4.35 sq ft per dog.

How the hell does he manage that?

8. from the article
Last week The Sunday Times covertly filmed Smith on two consecutive days receiving greyhounds from trainers before killing them with a bolt gun, dumping them in the plot and covering over the graves using a mechanical digger.

He told an undercover reporter it took him three years to fill the field, at which point he simply started all over again. Within a year the bodies have gone, said Smith. It takes me about three years to get across there and by the time I get there I can start back here again and there are only a few bones left.

11. Thanks. One of my pet peeves on DU are posters who don't read
the article they are questioning.

So I just dropkicked myself right in the crotch.

And I should have known the answer, anyway, having disposed of many animals in my lifetime.

7. Why the fuck is dog racing still legal?
It's not right to put these dogs through the hell they face, to warehouse them without socialization and to kill so many of them young for such an astonishingly stupid thing.
