  • Urge the Irish Government to Ban Cruel Hare Coursing

    428 views 4 months ago
    Please join calls on the Irish Government to ban cruel hare coursing which involves snatching hares from the wild and using them as live lures for greyhounds to chase. Every coursing season, hare injuries and deaths are documented; all hares used in this activity suffer the fear and stress of being netted from the wild, kept in unnatural captivity and forced to run for their lives.

    Get in touch with all your local TDs now and urge them to back Deputy Clare Daly's recently proposed Wildlife Amendment Bill 2015.

    Visit the Oireachtas website for names of TDs and their email addresses

    Write to your TDs at: Dail Eireann, Leinster House, Kildare Street, Dublin 2. Tel: 01-618 3000 or 1890 337 889.


    Minister Coveney: Save Irish hares from cruel coursing

    Free the Powerstown Park Hares and ban hare coursing

    Minister Humphreys - Stop Licensing Cruel Hare Coursing

    Please appeal to Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney to remove an exemption for hare coursing from the Animal Health and Welfare Act. The exemption allows coursers to practice their shameful bloodsport without fear of being prosecuted for animal cruelty.

    Simon Coveney, TD
    Minister for Agriculture
    Department of Agriculture
    Agriculture House,
    Kildare Street, Dublin 2.

    (If you have time, please compose your own personal letter. Otherwise, feel free to send the short sample letter below. Be assertive, but polite, in all correspondence. Thank you.)

    Dear Minister,

    I am one of the majority who want hare coursing outlawed. I am writing to urge you to revoke the licence you issued to the Irish Coursing Club.

    In coursing, hares suffer at all stages - during the capture, during the time they are kept in captivity and during the coursing meetings where they run for their lives in front of greyhounds. Among the injuries recorded are broken legs, damaged toes and dislocated hips. Every season, hare injuries and deaths are documented.

    I ask you to please act on the wishes of the majority, show compassion and permanently revoke the licence.

    Thank you.

    Yours sincerely,

    Dear Minister Coveney,

    I support a total ban on fur farming and an immediate closure of Ireland's fur farms.

    In these hellholes, animals suffer a horrendous life of misery before being cruelly gassed to death. There is absolutely no justification for allowing this cruelty to continue.

    Please ban fur farming now.

    Yours sincerely,
