Actually it isn't. Kim and I were at the Birmingham Race Course Saturday afternoon photographing a new bunch of Greyhounds and we saw several of these guys hopping around. They come out around dusk and munch on the clover on the ground.
It really isn't such a strange sight as Alan, a kennel trainer we know, says they run rampant around the grounds surrounding the kennel compound.
He has seen them even as close as 25 feet or so from the back of the turnout area of his own kennel. And, of course, there are scads of them.
If they only knew . . .
