Campaigners Shut Down West Houghton Stadium

Activists in Bolton, Lancashire have scored victory with the closure of West Houghton Greyhound Stadium.

For many months, they have campaigned for its closure and have now received the news they’ve been waiting for. Drawing in bad publicity for the stadium, activists regularly highlighted the fate of dogs in the racing industry who suffer behind the glitz and glamour.

A press release on West Houghton’s website reads:

“It is with sincere regret that I must advise that the Stadium is now closed.


Due to numerous issue’s it is no longer an option to continue to operate the stadium.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported the track and genuinely wanted it to succeed.

Jason Seddon”
