Secretly filmed footage from weekend hare coursing fixture exposes animal cruelty minister says "doesn't happen any more"...
international | environment | press release Tuesday November 22, 2016 17:37 by Ban Hare Coursing in Ireland
Last Saturday the Irish Council Against Bloodsports captured another shocking piece of video footage exposing cruelty in hare coursing...this time at the Ardpatrick and Kilfinane coursing fixture held in County Limerick. At great risk to herself (there's a strict ban on "authorised photography" at coursing events, enforced with threats and sometimes physical assault), Aideen Yourell of ICABS managed to record part of the fixture.
Her footage clearly shows a hare forcibly struck by greyhounds and desperately trying to escape... before being caught and severely mauled. After a prolonged battering, the hare is pulled away from the dogs, carried off the field and put in a wooden box.
