I am writing on behalf of the Galgos and their use in hare coursing. Galgos are a very gentle breed of dog, all they want and need is to be a companion animal and have a loving home to belong to. If you look into their eyes you will see a very gentle and loving animal, an animal that only wants to give love and receive it, an animal that does not have a mean bone in its body. By using them for hare coursing they are being made to do something that is against their nature, for it is their nature to be loving pets, not hunters. Please, on behalf of all the Galgos, please ban hare coursing. No person should gain pleasure or make money by watching animals hunt and potentially hurt and kill each other. The Galgos have no voice but yours, please, listen to their pleas, look into their eyes and see them for the wonderful creatures they are. Please ban hare coursing and give these dogs a chance at the life they so richly deserve. Please be their voice.
Thank you for your time and consideration of the pleas of the Galgos.
