Legislation to outlaw grotesque hunt will be introduced
18 December 2009
Speaking on RTE TV's Nine News, ICABS spokesperson Aideen Yourell expressed our confidence that Minister John Gormley will stand firm and introduce overdue legislation to ban the Ward Union carted deer hunt. The RTE report featured ICABS footage showing a deer surrounded by hounds being dragged to the ground during a Ward Union hunt.
"The minister will stand firm and legislation to outlaw this grotesque hunt will be introduced." stated Aideen. "It's long overdue. What we're talking about is an activity where a vulnerable animal - a deer with its antlers sawn off - is taken out and hounded around the countryside by a pack of dogs for sheer entertainment."
