A pet dog has been attacked and severely mauled by a pack of hunting hounds in a public Coillte (Irish Forestry Board) forest. The hounds pulled the dog off its lead and began biting into its body. It was left fighting for life at a veterinary clinic. The time has come for Coillte to put in place a blanket ban on all hunters entering its property.

      It is completely out of order to allow these people in what are our public spaces, with the inherent danger this poses to all.

      We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.

      -- Albert Schweitzer

      "A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as well as that of his fellowman, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help."

      Was walking with my family recently in a public forest area when a hunt went through,horses and dogs. They frightened both my dog and toddler. I am not a supporter of hunts and do not want them invading peaceful places where families go for walks.
