Report: Greyhound dies every three days on race track property

(WFLX) - Florida now requires track operators to report every greyhound death.

According to reports, a greyhound died on race track property every three days over a seven-month period last year.

Track operators must notify the state within 18 hours of a greyhound's death on track property.

Animal welfare advocates hope that increasing transparency will help reduce the number of dog deaths.
