Say NO to hare coursing in Edenderry, Co Offaly
18 October 2013

Please join us in speaking out against a hare coursing meeting Edenderry, Co Offaly. Hares are running for their lives from greyhounds at a meet being held in the town.

ICABS is urging local politicians to show compassion for the Irish Hare and speak out against the cruelty.

We have invited them to view video footage showing the cruelty of hare coursing in Ireland.

"Hare coursing brings shame on your town and damages its image," we stated. "Please speak out against coursing and support calls for it to be banned."
