01. Coursers get cruelty licence for 2012-13 season
ICABS has learned that Minister Jimmy Deenihan has issued a licence to hare coursers for another seasonof coursing cruelty.
Deenihan's licence allows the blood sports enthusiasts to net thousands of hares from the wild for use as live luresat around 91 coursing meetings around Ireland. See a copy of the cruelty licence athttp://www.scribd.com/doc/104511572Shame on Jimmy Deenihan and the National Parks and Wildlife Service for turning a blind eye to the suffering of hares and allowing this deplorable cruelty to continue.Earlier this year, Deenihan pledged to coursers: "Whatever I can do for coursing while I am in this job, I willcertainly do it."Please join us in our calls on Jimmy Deenihan to revoke the licence and save hares from another season of suffering.Jimmy Deenihan, TDMinister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht AffairsDepartment of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht23 Kildare Street, Dublin 2Email: ministersoffice@tcs.gov.ieCC: taoiseach@taoiseach.gov.ieTel: +353 (0)1 631 3802Fax: +353 (0)1 661 1201In 2003, Enda Kenny told ICABS: "I am opposed to the practice of live hare coursing."
