A large group of animal rights activists protested at the St. Stephen’s Day meet of the Waterford Foxhounds in Tramore Co. Waterford.

The annual protest was organised by the Association of Hunt Saboteurs and BadgerWatch Ireland.

Protesters held banners condemning foxhunting and called for a ban on bloodsports.

Speaking at the event, John Tierney, Campaigns Director, AOHS, said: “It is time for our legislators to deal with the issue of bloodsports for once and for all. They must carry out the wishes of their electors who do not wish to have our wildlife abused and killed for entertainment.”

According to Mr. Tierney there is a marked increase in bloodsports activities during the festive season.

He claims that hunting with hounds is brutal activity. It exists solely for the pleasure and entertainment for those with a twisted attitude towards animals.

John Tierney went on to say: “The annual hunt meet of the Waterford Foxhounds in Tramore town centre is a public relations effort by those a twisted attitude towards animals. How long more must the town of Tramore be linked with animal abuse and for the town to be held to ransom by animal abusers on St. Stephen’s Day.

Gardai reported no incidents at the event which ended after hunt riders left the Tramore town for the day’s hunting.
