Cruelty Ireland – Hare Coursing

12 Sep

A hare is chased and severely mauled at a hare coursing meeting in Ireland. Proof that the muzzling of greyhounds does not eliminate the suffering from coursing.

Every year, thousands of hares are forcefully netted from the wild and used as live bait for greyhounds. Hares caught and hit by the muzzled dogs are likely to suffer painful internal injuries. Every coursing season, hares are injured and killed on coursing fields. Injuries include broken bones and dislocated hips. Please join our campaign for a ban on this disgusting cruelty which a majority in Irish people want banned.

ACTION ALERT
