MIAMI (AP) — Florida votes to ban greyhound racing by 2021, signaling possible end of the sport in US.
There are only a few dog-racing tracks in the United States, and nearly all of them are in Florida. The practice is seen as cruel to the dogs. Banning dog racing would not impact slot machines and other forms of gaming.
Opponents of the Amendment included the Florida Chamber of Commer and the Florida Greyhound Association.
