Hare Coursing Protest

The Association of Hunt Saboteurs (AHOS) and the Campaign for the Abolition of Cruel Sports (CACS) have organized a demonstration to highlight what Hare Coursing in Ireland is really about and to have it banned.

The event will take place at the Hare Coursing’s main event in Clonmel.
There is a bus organized, so if you are interested please see the contacts below.
If attending please highlight the violation of rights and the exploitation of both hares and greyhounds who are both victims of hare coursing.

Hares are kidnapped from their homes in the wild and are held captive in a pen with other non solitary hares for about a month before they are used for hare coursing. They are then “trained” and used as prey for 2 speeding greyhounds who hunt them down. They will be forced to endure stress, mauling, being tossed into the air, severe injuries and/or death among other things.

Greyhounds are used to hunt down the hapless hares. They


compete with each other to catch the hare. All this for the cheap trills of humans.

When the greyhounds become too old or slow, they become “disposable”. The greyhounds are subject to many of the same exploitations as the dogs in the greyhound racing industry.
