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.

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.

SAMPLE LETTER (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.)
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.
Ireland's cruel blood sports exposed. Also included in this video are presentations showing the humane alternatives of drag hunting and drag coursing. The Irish Council Against Blood Sports is calling on the government to ban coursing and all forms of hunting animals with packs of dogs.
Videos showing the cruelty of hare coursing in Ireland. Coursing is illegal in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland but the government in the Republic of Ireland is intent on protecting those involved in this disgusting practice.
