Greyhound electrocuted in freak accident
Investigators have determined a freak accident caused the electrocution of a greyhound at a Florida dog track.
The Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel said Tuesday that state investigators ruled the greyhound's death to be an accident that occurred when the dog was bumped during a race, slid under the inside rail and came into contact with the electrical source that powers the target the dogs chase.
The Sentinel said the incident occurred Nov. 17 during the 12th race.
