Credibility of pro-hare coursing advocates questioned

category international | environment | opinion/analysis author Saturday January 19, 2013 18:12author by Protecting the Irish Hare Report this post to the editors

If you can't trust the messenger, how can you trust the message?

Terrorising animals for fun is not sport
Terrorising animals for fun is not sport

The credibility of leading pro hare coursing advocates must be seriously called into question by certain facts relating to them highlighted on the international "Greyhound Data" website. While those of us who seek a ban on hare coursing are no fans of such sites, we think that in this instance the public has a right to be aware of the type of people who represent the hare coursing fraternity.

The people referred to in the "imposter warning" on Greyhound Data are now leading lights in the pro-hare coursing lobby.

Here is the link to the relevant message on Greyhound Data:

I'd expect that from people who think fightening the living daylights out of hares is fun!
