Ask Limerick Racecourse to reject hare coursing
19 February 2013

The management of Limerick Racecourse is being asked to view footage of hares hit and mauled at the venue and stop hosting the cruel blood sport. The Irish Cup coursing meet is due to take place again at the racecourse this month. Please join our appeal now.

In February 2012, ICABS filmed hares being severely mauled at this event. See video footage below and respond to our action alert now.
