Macau is urged to ban dog racing

A Macau animal activist group has demanded the government to end greyhound races.

Macau.- The government of Macau received another petition by an animal rights organisation in order to accelerate the liberation of greyhounds, which are currently used during dog racing activities. The gaming sector would be ended by 2018 as several reports revealed the torture and killing the animals face.

The Canidrome managed by Angela Leon received a formal letter by Anima Macau, an activist group defending animals’ rights, in which operators are urged to release the dogs. The Canidrome is allegedly closing its doors next year, according to Asia Gaming Brief.

“We sent a letter to Canidrome, Angela Leong, asking them to release the animals to Anima and we will be fully responsible for all those animals and we are still waiting for the answer,” commented to the Asia Gaming Brief news outlet Albano Martins, current president of Anima Macau.
