Wax Museum joins calls for ban on horrific hare coursing
01 November 2017

Thumbs up to Dublin's Wax Museum for expressing support for a ban on Ireland's cruel hare coursing. Responding to a tweet from greyhound protection group, Pet Levrieri, that the "obscene show" that is hare coursing should be sent "to the chambers of horror" at the Wax Museum, the museum responded to say "We don't consider it appropriate for our #ChamberofHorrors", adding that it's "#Time2Ban".

Video filmed by ICABS at the weekend shows why the time is indeed now to ban this horrific activity. Our footage shows hares terrorised back and forth across a field in Ballinagar, County Offaly. In one incident, a hare was hit hard by a dog and sent tumbling head over heels as a mob of merciless bloodsports fanatics looked on. We also filmed a greyhound crashing head first into the ground.

Please join us as we renew our appeal to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and the Irish Government to stop facilitating the thuggish brutes who get their pleasure from watching animals running for their lives and instead side with the decent majority who want coursing banned.
