Hare Coursing Protest, 4th Feb 09

Posted in Blood Sports / Entertainment by Glô! on the January 27th, 2009

National Hare Coursing Finals Protest!

The “National Hare Coursing Finals” will take place in Clonmel, Co.Tipperaray during the first week of Feb 09. Like every year, the finals will attract up to 30,000 supporters of this form of animal exploitation.

Organised by ICABS and ARAN, a national protest will take place outside Powerstown Park to highlight the plight of hares who will have their basic rights violated in the name of sport.

Hare Coursing is banned in England, Scotland and Wales, as well as most countries.

Ireland is one of the remaining countries in the world to still allow this cruel practice. Although the greyhounds are muzzled, the cruelty remains the same as the hares will be captured, chased, battered and mauled into the ground by a group of greyhounds.

Help ICABS and ARAN to ban this practice, join the protest and voice your opinion against the violation of these animals’ rights.

For more info:
Please contact ICABS and ARAN for transport arrangement and more info about the event.
