Victims of Ireland's cruel hare coursing
06 September 2013

Every year in Ireland, thousands of hares are violently netted from the wild and used as lures for greyhounds in "hare coursing". These timid, delicate creatures suffer the fear and stress of running for their lives. Those hit by the muzzled greyhounds sustain painful and life-threatening injuries. Our new campaign video highlights just some of the victims of this cruel activity.

Opinion polls have shown that a majority of Irish people want hare coursing banned - as it already is in our neighbouring jurisdictions of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland.
