BAN CRUEL HARE COURSING

0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!


In coursing, thousands of hares are snatched from the wild in nets and forced to run for their lives in front of pairs of muzzled greyhounds. All hares suffer the fear and stress of running for their lives and every coursing season, hare injuries and deaths occur.

Among the injuries recorded are broken back, spinal injury, broken legs, damaged toes and dislocated hips. 

Hares suffer at all stages - during the capture, during the time they are held captive in coursing compounds and during the coursing meetings where they can be seen desperately running as a merciless mob cheer the greyhounds on and gamble on which dog will force the hare to change direction first.

ACTION ALERT

Contact all your local TDs and encourage them to back a ban on cruel hare coursing. Visit the Oireachtas website for names of TDs and their contact details http://www.oireachtas.ie/members-hist/default.asp?housetype=0&HouseNum=33&disp=mem

Contact the Taoiseach (Prime Minister) and Tanaiste (Deputy Prime Minister). Urge them to ban hare coursing and give permanent protection to hares.
