New Hampshire Bans Dog Racing

The New Hampshire House of Representatives votes to make greyhound racing illegal.

Last Wednesday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to outlaw dog racing statewide. The bill was sponsored by Rep. Mary Cooney, D-Plymouth, and passed with an overwhelming majority. It now heads for a second vote in the State Senate. The legislation would outlaw live dog racing, but would still allow for simulcasts—broadcasting races from a different place—of dog and horse racing. Last week, lawmakers in Massachusetts also passed legislation to ban dog racing with the Greyhound Protection Act, which will close the state's two dog racing tracks. Greyhound-rights activist group Grey2K USA has championed such legislation in both states.
