Hitched.

In Northumbria, 3 Greyhounds considered too old for racing by their handler were taken to a field where they were hitched by the handles of their leashes to a fence a space apart. 2 of the Greyhounds were shot in the chest…..the third had to wait and watch the shotgun be reloaded before his life was blasted away with a single barrel. The person removed the collars from his victims for use on their replacements. "Away the lads….".
