In an "Activities in Adare" sign at Adare Heritage Centre, "hunting" is listed as one of the local activities. Inside the building, a display includes an image of foxhunters and hounds. Please join us in calling on Adare Heritage Centre to remove these and stop encouraging visitors to Adare to take part in a blood sport which causes horrific suffering and death to Irish wildlife.
It is extremely surprising that any modern tourism body would wish to associate the area it promotes with animal cruelty. Hunting is opposed by a majority of Irish citizens and there is no doubt that most visitors, and potential visitors, to Adare would consider hunting to be abhorrent. Adare has so many positive attractions and activities to offer locals and tourists.
After signing the petition, phone Adare Heritage Centre or send a polite email requesting that they stop promoting hunting. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: +353 (0) 61 39 66 66
In hunting, animals such as foxes and hares are terrorised, chased to exhaustion and ripped apart by packs of hounds. When foxes try to escape underground, terriers are sent after them to attack them while hunters use shovels to dig them out before brutally killing them.
Adare has so many positive attractions and activities to offer locals and tourists. There is absolutely no justification for encouraging people to take part in hunting cruelty.
