Please join our appeal to the Minister for Agriculture to show compassion and urgently ban cruel digging out and terrierwork.

You may use the following sample letter or compose an original letter of your own.

For the attention of the Minister for Agriculture Department of Agriculture,
Agriculture House,
Kildare Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.
CC: (An Taoiseach)
Tel: 00353 (0)1-6072000. LoCall 1890-200510.
Fax: 00353 (0)1-6611013.

Dear Minister:

I support the Irish Council Against Blood Sports’ call on you to urgently outlaw both digging out and terrierwork. These horrendous acts of cruelty are carried out by sadistic individuals and also by merciless foxhunting groups (when terrified foxes try to find refuge underground). There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for this shameful animal abuse and it must be stopped.

Please make it an offence NOW to dig out any animal or send terriers below ground to catch and attack animals under any circumstances. I also call on you to outlaw the use of packs of hounds to harass, attack, injure and/or kill any animal.

Thank you, Minister. I look forward to your positive response.
