Save Irish hares from cruel coursing

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000.

Thousands of Irish hares are forcefully snatched from the countryside every year and forced to run for their lives in front of pairs of greyhounds. Those involved in this cruelty are allowed to continue without fear of prosecution, due to an exemption for coursing in Ireland's Animal Health and Welfare Act.

Injuries suffered by hares in coursing include broken bones and dislocated hips. The Minister for Agriculture (who has responsibility for animal welfare legislation) and the Irish Government must act now to outlaw hare coursing and save hares from the cruelty inherent in this outdated bloodsport.
