Demand political action to end blood sports
Don't accept an "Animal Welfare" Bill that allows hare coursing, foxhunting, digging-out and terrierwork. Please contact all your local TDs now and urge them to support amendments to the Animal Health and Welfare Bill 2012 that seek to improve the Bill to protect animals from Ireland's worst acts of cruelty.

Dear TD / Senator,
I am writing to ask you to use your influence as a TD/Senator to help bring blood sports to an end in Ireland.
As one of your constituents who is opposed to animal cruelty, I wish to see you working towards outlawing the blood sports of foxhunting, hare coursing, carted deer hunting and mink hunting.
(Add in your personal feelings about blood sports here - perhaps outline the cruelty of blood sports, how animals suffer and how blood sports are out of place in a modern, civilised society.)
Thank you. I look forward to your positive response.
(If you are writing on behalf of a group of people, ask everyone to sign the letter)

Contact anti-blood sports TDs/Senators and praise their efforts to get hunting and coursing banned. If your TD/Senator is in favour of animal cruelty, please let them know that their stance will affect your future voting decisions.
