Racing Greyhounds At Galveston-Area Track Sick

HOUSTON (AP) - An undiagnosed illness has left six racing dogs dead and scores of others ill at a Galveston-area greyhound track, forcing cancellation of an entire weekend of racing cards.

The Houston Chronicle reports the illness was first noticed late last month in the kennels at the Gulf Greyhound Park in LaMarque.

Track General manager Sally Brigs said veterinarians have tried to keep the illness from spreading. She said that, as of Monday, about 80 dogs were still coughing but none registered fever.

Texas Racing Commission spokeswoman Jean Cook said a necropsy at Texas A&M University's vet school provided no diagnosis.
