REPORTED GREYHOUND INJURIES AND DEATHS AT IRISH TRACKS

At tracks around Ireland in the past four years, 1,559 greyhounds suffered injuries and 506 were killed. The Irish Greyhound Board figures are based on “reported” injuries and deaths, suggesting that the actual number could be even higher. They do not include the greyhounds injured at tracks and later killed elsewhere, or the thousands of greyhounds who go missing each year – presumed killed when found to be too slow to win races.

Cancer Society was right to refuse funds from foxhunters

9 Mar

limerick leader 2 March 2019 letter.jpg

Well done to the Irish Cancer Society for refusing funds from foxhunters – read Brendan Purcell’s Letter to the Editor in the Limerick Leader…

Cancer Society was right to refuse funds
Limerick Leader, 2 March 2019

I refer to the story on page four of your paper of February 23, with the heading “Cancer doesn’t distinguish whether you’re a hunting person or not”.

Fortunately, the Irish Cancer Society now does and has declined funds from the organisers of the annual hunting festival which takes place on both sides of the Limerick and Kerry border.

Councillor Bill O’Donnell disagrees and goes on to say that he is a member of the County Limerick Foxhounds as is Mr John O’Keeffe, Ballingarry, who also disagrees and goes on to say that the decision is tough on the Abbeyfeale Harriers.

Councillor O’Donnell and Mr O’Keeffe should bear in mind the animal cruelty and animal abuse that exists in fox hunting where a small animal has to run for its life from a pack of hounds and followers for as long as its lungs and heart and legs will last.

When the animal finds refuge in a burrow or its home, if it hasn’t been already blocked by the hunt club on the day before, to make sure that there will be no interruption to the fun and enjoyment of the hunters.

The burrow will be broken into with shovels and spades and terriers and enthusiasm in order to evict the terrified animal from its refuge and then the hounds will be allowed to tear the terrified and often partly injured animal apart alive.

I would say well done to the Irish Cancer Society.

Fox chased across river twice during shameful Wicklow hunt

9 Mar

fox chased across river twice wicklow hunt

A fox was chased across a river twice during a shameful hunt in Wicklow, it has emerged.

According to a sickening report this month in the Irish Field, the unfortunate fox was being pursued by hunters on horseback and a pack of 31 hounds during a joint-meeting of the Shillelagh Hunt and Kildare Foxhounds.

“Hounds found in Stanley’s and ran on for Peter Morrin’s and through the forestry where the fox and the pack jumped the Crann River and crossed the Crann road running right-handed in a circle,” the report outlines. “But he [the fox] decided that he wanted to head back and crossed the Crann road again just in front of Amy Roche and jumped the river again. He did a loop at the back of John Forrestal’s house and eventually went to ground.”

“Going to ground”, in hunting terminology, refers to when the terrified fox tries to find refuge from the pack of approaching hounds by running down into an earth or drain. It may be followed by hunt terriermen being called in to send terriers after the fox. The terriers attack and corner the fox while the hunters dig the clay away from above before pulling the fox out and killing him.

Later in the day during the hunt in Wicklow, hounds found two more foxes “that were content to hunt in circles before they went to ground”.

Among those at the hunt were jockey Robbie Jackson and “Karen Moore, a veterinary nurse in Sycamore Lodge on the Curragh [who] rode the winner of the charity race in Punchestown last April”.

Vet clinic sponsoring greyhound racing at one of worst tracks

27 Feb

A Limerick veterinary clinic is associating with greyhound racing at one of the worst tracks in Ireland for dog injuries and deaths.

The Irish Greyhound Board website shows Treaty Veterinary Clinic’s name attached to three races at Limerick stadium on 13 December, i.e “The Treaty Veterinary Clinic A5 525 Round 1 Heat 1/2/3” https://www.igb.ie/results/view-results/?track=LMK&date=13-Dec-2018 The clinic’s link to racing at the track goes back to at least 2007.

Shocking Irish Greyhound Board statistics show that in the past three and a half years alone at Limerick stadium, 159 greyhounds suffered injuries and 49 died or were killed by a track vet. This includes 46 injuries and 19 deaths in 2017, making it the worst in the country last year for dog deaths.

They are just some of the 1,369 greyhounds injured and 438 greyhounds killed at tracks around Ireland since 2015. Their painful injuries included “severed spine” and broken hock bones.

This does not include the greyhounds injured at tracks and later killed elsewhere, or the thousands of greyhounds who go missing each year – presumed killed when found to be too slow to win races. Greyhounds are also dying in local dog pounds. 2,729 greyhounds have been killed in pounds in the past eight years.

As previously highlighted by ICABS, Treaty Veterinary Clinic has also in the past sponsored hare coursing. A booklet for a coursing meeting in County Limerick showed that “John Garrihy Treaty Veterinary Clinic Limerick” not only sponsored the Oaks Trial Stake but was also set to present a cup to the owner of the winning greyhound.

ACTION ALERT

Urge the Veterinary Council of Ireland to stop veterinary clinics associating with greyhound races and hare coursing.

Fonez urged to stop sponsoring greyhound racing

27 Feb

Thumbs down to mobile phone retailer, Fonez, for sponsoring greyhound racing at Galway stadium – a venue where dogs suffer injuries and die.

According to the Irish Greyhound Board website, one of the races at the track on 29 December was the “WWW.FONEZ.IE S8 350 Final” with prize money of over €2,000.

Fonez, with stores in Galway, Letterkenny and Cork, has been sponsoring greyhound racing since at least 2015 when it offered customers free passes to a “Fonez Gala Night” at Galway stadium.

The company is being urged to end its support for greyhound racing. In an email, ICABS highlighted that in the past three and a half years alone, 80 greyhounds suffered injuries at Galway stadium and 21 died or were killed by a track vet.

Among the victims was a greyhound who was heard crying out in agony after falling to the ground during a race on 5th January 2018. 1-year-old “Ballycastle Val” collided with another greyhound and tumbled at the beginning of what was to be her first and final race. As the race continued, Ballycastle Val’s cries rang out around the stadium and are clearly audible in the Irish Greyhound Board’s race footage – https://www.igb.ie/videos/videos/?raceid=GLY_2018_01_05_03

Nationwide, in the same period, there were 1,369 greyhounds injured and 438 deaths. This does not include the dogs injured at tracks and later killed elsewhere, or the thousands who go missing each year – presumed destroyed when found to be too slow to win races.

Others companies connected to racing at Galway stadium on the same night were Train Station Gym, Corribview Safety Services and Sword Security.

ACTION ALERT

Join us in appealing to Fonez to show compassion for the dogs and stop sponsoring greyhound racing.
