Surehaul asked to disassociate from hare coursing
12 February 2014

Commercial vehicles company, Surehaul, is being urged to stop advertising in booklets for cruel hare coursing. The dealer for Mercedes, Mitsubishi and Renault had a full page advert in the booklet for the national hare coursing finals this month.

In an email to Surehaul, the Irish Council Against Blood Sports highlighted the cruelty of hare coursing, outlining that it involves hares running for their lives from greyhounds and that every season there are hare injuries and deaths.

"Hare coursing is so cruel, it has been outlawed in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and here in the Republic of Ireland, a majority of citizens want coursing outlawed," we stated in our correspondence. "It is therefore very surprising, given this huge opposition, that SureHaul would wish to be in any way connected to the activity."

"Being associated with a form of animal cruelty is likely to prove very off-putting to many potential customers," we added.


Please join us in appealing to SureHaul to fully disassociate from cruel coursing and give a commitment that no further ads will be placed in coursing booklets.
