Ask Betting Company Boylesports to STOP sponsoring horrific hare coursing in Ireland

category international | animal rights | opinion/analysis author Friday June 22, 2012 19:34author by Ban Hare Coursing Report this post to the editors

The horrific practice of live hare coursing in Ireland is kept alive by THREE main financial sponsors:

One of them is County Louth-based betting company, Boylesports.

A flees in terror an Irish coursing event

On its website, the company refers very briefly to the fact that it sponsors “coursing”, without elaborating or explaining that it is LIVE hare coursing, as distinct from drag coursing as practiced in some countries in which no hares are used.

Boylesports offers massive financial backing to the National Coursing Event, the three day fixture which is the culmination or “finals” of the whole barbaric season of this appalling blood sport in Ireland.

By persuading sponsors to withdraw support from hare coursing, you can help to bring it to an end even before our slow-moving politicians get around to accepting that it should be banned.

Here are the contact details for Boylesports. Please request the company, by email, letter, phone call (or any method that is convenient for you) to cease all funding of this despicable practice:
