Hare coursing cruelty highlighted on TV3's Morning Show
30 August 2013

The cruelty of hare coursing has been highlighted on TV3's "The Morning Show". ICABS spokesperson Aideen Yourell told viewers about the stress, injuries and deaths caused by coursing and called for hares to be replaced with an artificial lure. After watching an online repeat of today's show, please join the campaign against this deplorable bloodsport.

A big thank you to TV3 and The Morning Show for this opportunity to remind viewers that despite bans in all our neighbouring jurisdictions, hare coursing shamefully continues in the Republic. Please help us secure a ban on hare coursing - respond to the action alerts below now and join our email list for upcoming action alerts.
