Urge Minister Deenihan to stop licensing hare coursing

ICABS is calling on Minister for Arts and Heritage Jimmy Deenihan to stop renewing a licence which allows cruel hare coursing to continue in Ireland.

The licence allows coursing clubs all around Ireland to capture hares from the wild for use as live lures for greyhounds.

"The coursing licences you have approved will cause immeasurable suffering to thousands of Irish Hares," ICABS stated in an email to Minister Deenihan. "Hares will suffer the fear and stress of being captured from the wild and running for their lives in front of greyhounds. Among the injuries likely, thanks to these licences, are broken bones, dislocated hips, damaged toes and mashed internal organs."


Contact Minister Deenihan now and urge him to stop licensing cruel hare coursing.
