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.
These disgusting activities are responsible for terrible cruelty to animals and should have no place in modern Ireland.
I appeal to you to show compassion and back a total ban on blood sports in Ireland.
Thank you. I look forward to your response.
