Louth Hunt Ball, Anti Hunt Demo Report

Activists from Hunt Saboteurs campaigned at the Louth Hunt Ball outside of the Four Seasons Hotel in Ballsbridge on the 8th of August, 2009 to protest hunting of animals in Ireland.

This was a “Horse Show [jumping] co-ordinated event held by the Louth Hunt” according to the Association of Hunt Saboteurs who organized the demonstration. Horse jumping shows is another industry that likes to exploit animals for amusement.

With posters, leaflets and banners, the activists educated people who were interested. The Dublin Horse Show was ending as the protest occurred. The Dublin Horse show attracts a sizeable portion of hunters or pro hunters

as well as those who think a horse’s back was somehow made for humans to sit upon. With little reason beyond “I like to hunt” and a pretense that “culling” is needed, hunters value non humans as an object of “sport”.

If they kill them, the hunter wins, if they don’t kill them, the hunter doesn’t win. The non human, incidentally, always loses, whether they die, they are torn apart, mutilated, wounded or for the “lucky” ones – “just stressed”. But where’s the “sport” in thinking about that? With some of the passing hunters, who clearly enjoyed the pictures of torn apart foxes, this probably added to their fun.
Hopefully some hunters and horse show attendees will have learned something about the non use of animals. That includes the dogs and horses that some hunters seem incapable of not exploiting as well as the more obvious victims such as foxes, rabbits and deers.
