NPWS asked to investigate Ward Union "still hunting" claim
13 April 2011

ICABS has asked the National Parks and Wildlife Service to investigate a claim by Meath TD, Shane McEntee, that members of the Ward Union deerhunt are "still hunting".

In a 1st February 2011 Dail debate, Deputy McEntee stated: "[Minister John Gormley] did not get to ban the Ward Union after all his talk. Its members are still hunting."

The Ward Union hunt, involving the chasing of a domesticated deer with a pack of hounds, was banned in June 2010, after Minister Gormley's Wildlife Amendment Bill won majority support in Dail Eireann.


If you have information about any post-ban deerhunting activities, please contact the National Parks and Wildlife Service and ICABS immediately. Thank you.
