Controversial animal sports

GREYHOUND RACING: Greyhounds wait to be led to the track at Wichita Greyhound Park in Kansas in November 1996. The dogs traditionally chase a lure around a track and the one that crosses the finish line first is the winner. The sport has its origins in coursing, and has come under criticism for the mistreatment of the dogs. Massachusetts banned greyhound racing in January 2009.
