According to documents and video footage obtained from the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, two greyhounds suffered fatal injuries during a three-day span in November 2008. On November 17, a three-year old brindle greyhound named Birthday Toy was electrocuted during a race at Sanford Orlando Kennel Club. On November 19, a two-year old fawn greyhound named Jawa Spock was euthanized after breaking both back legs during a race at Palm Beach Kennel Club.
The legislature is considering various proposals to expand gambling and subsidize the live greyhound racing industry.
Greyhound racing is opposed by every major animal protection group. Revenues from dog racing have declined precipitously in recent years, and fourteen dog tracks have closed or ended live racing since 2004.
