CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Racing Commission has given more than $10 million to greyhound breeders, with a small group receiving the most benefits.

The Charleston Daily Mail (https://bit.ly/1Fd60eo ) reports more than $10 million has been given over the past two years to individuals and businesses through the state’s Greyhound Breeding Development fund. The finding comes after Grey2K USA, an organization working to end greyhound racing across the nation, asked the commission last month for a list of those who have received funding since May 2013.

Of the 73 recipients receiving a combined $10.2 million, five received $4.89 million. McMillion Kennel owner Patrick McMillion of Alum Creek receieved the most at $1.4 million.

McMillion says he doesn’t believe Grey2K will be successful in their efforts to end dog racing in the state.
