Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds, who alongside Plaid Cymru’s Luke Fletcher has been one of the leading voices calling for a ban on greyhound racing welcomed a commitment by the Welsh Government to consult on a possible ban on the practice in Wales.
Commenting on the news Jane Dodds said: “I welcome this news today as a first step towards banning the cruel practice of greyhound racing in Wales.
“As many will know I have continuously campaigned for a ban since being elected and rescued my own racing greyhound Arthur who sadly passed away recently.
“Greyhound racing leaves dogs traumatised, Arthur was a very anxious dog. His back legs went, and he had a serious neck injury from racing."
“I don't want any more Arthurs," said Jane. "I don't want any more dogs that come out like Arthur.
“We have to ban greyhound racing and I will continue to work cross-party to do so.”
