greyhound racing

A bill that would ban the use of steroids in racing greyhounds is nearing its last hurdle in the Florida legislature.

The Florida House has approved a proposal banning the use of steroids in greyhound racing.  

A bill to prevent greyhound tracks from giving their racing dogs steroids is moving forward in the Senate.
