Dear RTE,

I am one of the majority of Irish people who are opposed to the cruel blood sport of hare coursing. Last February 6th, RTE Radio included a report on this cruelty in its sports coverage. I find this totally unacceptable. Coursing should never be classified as a sport by your station - it is one of Ireland's worst forms of animal cruelty, causing horrific injuries and death to the Irish Hare.

RTE - Please keep cruelty out of your sports reports!

Thank you.
Yours faithfully,
