To ask the Scottish Government how many cases of racing greyhounds being drugged have been reported in the last five years.

Answered by: Mairi Gougeon 27 February 2019

The Scottish Government does not receive routine reports on the misuse of drugs on racing greyhounds.

The Scottish Government encourages persons with concerns over the drugging of racing greyhounds to bring evidence to the attention of Police Scotland, the relevant local authority or the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
