Coveney challenged on animal welfare commitment claim

25 Feb

Announcing funding for various animal welfare groups, a statement from Minister Simon Coveney includes the following: “The Minister said that he had demonstrated his commitment to improving the entire scope of animal welfare…”

ICABS response: “Minister, until you ban hare coursing, foxhunting, terrierwork, digging out, fur farming, etc, you cannot truthfully claim that you have demonstrated a “commitment to improving the entire scope of animal welfare”. Animals will suffer terrible fates over Christmas and into the New Year due to your failure to properly address these issues.”

If you would like to leave a comment for the Minister, and urge him to ban foxhunting, hare coursing, terrierwork, digging-out, fur farming and all acts of animal cruelty, visit his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SimonCoveney
