In Ireland's cruel coursing, thousands of hares are snatched from the wild in nets are forced to run for their lives from pairs of greyhounds. Every coursing season, hare injuries and deaths occur. All hares used suffer fear and stress.


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

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