INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Hare coursing is a so-called "sport" in which hares (jack rabbits to
Americans) are set up as bait for greyhounds to chase and terrorize. Many
hares are killed or horribly injured each year as they are mauled or tossed
about like rag dolls on the coursing fields. Some hares die within seconds
of being struck by the fast moving dogs. Others die of agonizing internal
injuries, such as bone breakages that cannot heal.
A member of Ireland's parliament, the Dail, will attempt in the coming months to have hare coursing banned.
We desperately need people to petition the government of Ireland, requesting its support for this Bill.
That's where this petition comes in. Each time a person signs it, an email immediately goes to the Taoiseach and Tanaiste (Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Ireland) requesting their support for the Bill.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
