"I am not an animal rights activist," Tony Glover, a lawyer from Tallahassee, wrote in a Miami Herald op-ed in September. "To my daughter’s great disappointment, we do not even have a dog."
But when Glover ended up landing a job at a greyhound racing regulation agency, he observed some surprising patterns in the dog racing industry. "It quickly became clear to me that the dog racing industry has a major problem," he wrote. "[It] has consistently demonstrated that it is unwilling to adequately protect their animals ... Greyhound racers and their representatives do everything they can to avoid responsibility."
