Erin N. Jackson Place of Publication:  Animal Law Review at Lewis & Clark School of Law Publish Year:  2001 Primary Citation:  7 Animal L. 175 (2001)

Ms. Jackson explores the greyhound racing industry in Massachusetts in her article and discusses the widespread and well-known animal abuse rampant in the industry. The author argues that greyhound racing in the state of Massachusetts should be abolished on the grounds that the abuse the dogs suffer is analogous to that perpetrated in outlawed animal fighting sports and that industry practices violate the basic Massachusetts anti-cruelty statute and common law.
