Cruelty to animals should not be allowed in Ireland

18 Oct

“Cruelty to animals is cruelty to animals and it should not be allowed…Hare coursing involves cruelty to animals. Fox hunting involves cruelty and suffering for animals. It is not something the vast majority of people in the country want or support.” Richard Boyd Barrett, TD (People Before Profit Alliance, Dun Laoghaire) during a debate on the Animal Health and Welfare Bill, Dail Eireann, September 19th, 2012.

A big thank you to Richard for speaking up for animals.
