WICKLOW County Council / ISPCA REFUSE RESCUE GROUPS ACCESS to SAVE ‘POUND DOGS’ LIVES

- DEMAND THAT WICKLOW COUNCIL MEMBERS ALLOW THESE DOGS TO BE SAVED/rehomed BY REPUTABLE RESCUES

The ISPCA run the WICKLOW pound on behalf of Wicklow county council. There are 2 dog wardens employed who have been doing the job for years and obviously by their stance they obviously think killing is perfectly acceptable.
They are obstructing all efforts to allow rescues in to help the dogs and have the backing of the council, the ISPCA do not intervene.
According to sources there has been no effective governance of the pound by the council at all - they just sign a cheque for them every year and don't want to know.
The council don’t appear to care or have a clue about the pound and insist all the dogs they kill are unsuitable for rehoming (44% in 2010 and 28% last year)
Dogs Trust can take some dogs as does Wicklow spca but there are lots of other dogs that need help.

Following yesterday's decision by the UK Court of Appeal that the proposed badger cull is legal it is imperative that we all work to try and stop this wildlife tragedy from happening; within a few weeks hundreds of badgers could be shot each night when they come out of their setts looking for food. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-19563661

Regarding Information about a coursing field that causes many hare casualties.

A Coursing supporter rang us today relaying a dispute in the ICC and Limerick Coursing Club as follows.

We received a call today from a disgruntled and annoyed Coursing supporter who was concerned about limerick Race track being used as a coursing venue. He must have ran out of options to resolve this scenario if he rang us.

We already knew that the Irish Coursing Club had decided last month to move the “Irish Cup” hare coursing event from Limerick Racecourse owing to its unsuitability as a coursing venue.
There is however a meeting this week of top coursing people on Thursday, July 26th,at the Horse and Jockey Pub? We are told ‘at which very powerful people within the greyhound industry will be pressing for a reversal of the ICC’s decision to move the “Irish Cup” event from Limerick Racecourse’.

SPONSORSHIP OF LIVE HARE COURSING IN IRELAND

The multi-millionaire JP MC MANUS is sponsor of the annual Irish cup event, usually held in Co Limerick every Year. The Limerick coursing Club have recently lost their usual venue at the Limerick race track for next year and we now have an opportunity to lobby the sponsors. If sponsorship is pulled in this case it will be a serious blow to the Irish coursing club and help to end this blood sport once and for all.

Seal killings- due to mans ggreed.

We strongly condemn Fine GAEL Councellor Seosamh O Laoi’s claims that the west coast seal population needs to be culled [to protect the fishery industry]. In reality, the decline in fish stocks is due to over over-fishing by the very industry he is involved in.
This man, who is himself involved in aquaculture - said that representatives of the fishing organisations should sit down with the relevant experts and work out a culling strategy. He also reminisces to olden days where fishermen carried guns in their boats, and "kept the place clean." read full story / add a comment

Hare coursing: Being kept alive by financial sponsorship

We wonder if you could help us win a crucial battle in the ongoing campaign against cruel hare coursing in Ireland.

As the campaign to persuade the Irish government to ban hare coursing continues, financial sponsorship is keeping this horrific practise alive.
