Irish Independent urged to stop presenting animal cruelty as ‘sport’

The Irish Independent includes cruel hare coursing in its sports pages. And an item in the Farming section of its 27th January edition referred to the terrorisation of foxes in foxhunting as “good sport”.

As a reputable news publication, the Independent must recognise that neither hare coursing or foxhunting could in any way ever be accurately categorised as “sport”.

Please join us in appealing to the editor of the Irish Independent to stop presenting animal cruelty as sport.
