MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A kennel at a dog racing track in Mobile has been shut down and the trainer's license revoked after a track run by his brother in Florida was closed amid charges of animal cruelty.
Mobile County racing Commissioner Mike Box told the Mobile Press-Register newspaper that trainer Harold Williams' license was revoked.
Williams' brother, Ronnie Williams was charged Oct. 30 with animal cruelty after 37 dead greyhounds were found at a kennel in Ebro, Fla. in the Florida Panhandle. Five dogs in the Florida kennel were still alive and three of them had duct tape wrapped around their necks.
The Mobile County Racing Commission has placed Harold Williams
on probation twice in the last year, once when one of the kennel's
dogs tested positive for cocaine after a race.
