.@DefraGovUK: "BAN THE BOLT" ABOLISH THE USE OF THE CAPTIVE BOLT GUN TO DESTROY GREYHOUNDS IN THE UK.

Each year an estimated 10,000 ex-racing greyhounds are ‘unaccounted’ for — puppies that don’t make the grade, dogs that sustain injuries, are pregnant or unable to find homes, most are less than five years old. Many of these dogs are disposed of in the most ‘economical’ way – by bolt gun.

Under existing UK legislation, any person can use a bolt gun to destroy a greyhound, if they are the legal owner. Attempted destruction of greyhounds by bolt has resulted in innocent dogs being left to suffer in agony for hours, before being found and taken to a veterinary surgery to be finally put to sleep by lethal injection.
