Brian May: Ireland’s hare coursing “barbarity must end”

28 Jun

'Hare coursing barbarity must end' ~Brian May

Queen legend, Brian May, has called for a ban on Ireland’s cruel hare coursing.

In a tweet posted on Monday – three days before a vote is due to take place on a proposed coursing ban – the much loved guitarist and animal rights campaigner stated: “This barbarity must end”.

Brian May has previously spoken out against the cruel bloodsport. Reacting to ICABS photos of hares in captivity in a coursing enclosure last October, he condemned hare coursing as “a disgusting so-called sport” that “belongs in history”.

“Let’s keep fighting for decency, folks,” he added.

A big thank you to Brian May for his latest statement which we have brought to the attention of party leaders as part of an appeal to them to support Maureen O’Sullivan TD’s bill to ban coursing and allow a free vote on the issue.
