Ban Blood Sports in Ireland

      Irish Council Against Blood Sports ICABS

      Ireland, Ireland

Blood sports have no place in modern Ireland. Using live hares as lures for greyhounds in coursing is unacceptable. So too is using a pack of hounds to chase and tear foxes to bits. A ban on coursing, foxhunting and all forms of hunting animals with packs of dogs is long overdue in Ireland.

      This cruelty should not be amusing to us -- "sport" that tortures living creatures is ethically abhorrent.
