I'm happy to see dog racing finally gone from Florida, it always seemed skeevy and gross when I was a kid and heard it existed.
But then *galaxy brain* why is horse racing any more noble? I grew up around horse racing and trainers across the board treated their animals like shit, and it's all about gambling and money.
@mathowie There's a strong argument to be made that all of the animals-as-entertainment industries need to go. I'm even sometimes conflicted on zoos which are at least starting from education and conservation.
