HUMANE GROUPS OPPOSE DOG TRACK TAXES TO FIX DAWG POUND
Published March 28, 1995
A proposal made last month to use dog racing revenues to fund $130M worth of renovations to Cleveland Stadium met resistance from dog racing opponents. More than 150 people gathered at the Stadium "declaring war on anyone interested in bringing the industry to the Stadium." William Long, Deputy Dir of Government Affairs for the U.S. Humane Society: "We would like the dog [Dawg] pound to stay in football, not in racing." The Browns' response last month to the proposal was "non- committal" (Douglas Montero, Cleveland PLAIN-DEALER, 3/26).
