ICABS HASexpressed disgustto Louth-based betting compa-ny, Boylesports, over its contin-ued association with cruel harecoursing.
An advert on the Irish CoursingClub website declares thatBoylesports is "No 1 for coursingbetting" and offers a free bet tocoursers.On its website, Boylesports pro-claims that its sponsorshipsinclude "Coursing at Clonmel"."Your association with an activitythat causes terror, stress, injuryand death to the Irish Hare isappalling.," ICABS stated in anemail. "It is disgusting that yourcompany considers it appropriateto support an activity whose vic-tims include hares with brokenlegs and dislocated hips andhares mauled so severely thatthey have died from their injuries.We hope you will reconsider yourshameful stance and stop thesponsorship and bets."Brought to Boylesports' attentionwas some of the victims of cours-ing, including a hare squealing indistress when caught by a muz-zled dog and a hare in agony in acoursing enclosure with its leg"almost completely broken off".In July 2012, a protest outside aBoylesports branch in Dublin,called for a boycott and urged thecompany to "Stop SponsoringCruelty". In a 2011 Sunday Timesinterview, Boylesports founderJohn Boyle, stated "I love thecoursing."Witness the cruelty of harecoursing at tinyurl.com/7fqjvgw

Please consider organisinga protest outside your near-est Boylesports branch."IT IS NOTappropriate to sim-ply outlaw hare coursing andhunting when they are pur-sued according to the codesof conduct drawn up byclubs" - the outrageouswords of Agriculture MinisterSimon Coveney during a DailEireann speech on the AnimalHealth and Welfare Bill onSeptember 20th.
"Considerable numbers ofpeople are passionate aboutthese pursuits and my job is toensure that standards are metrather than simply outlawingpractices," he added.Please contact MinisterCoveney now. Tell him that youare one of the considerablemajority of Irish citizens whowant hunting and hare coursingbanned and that it is veryappropriate indeed for him toban cruelty in an "AnimalWelfare" Bill.

THE IRISH Council AgainstBlood Sports is appealing tothe Clonmel Park Conference,Leisure & Spa Hotel in CountyTipperary to stop publicisinghare coursing.On its website, the hotel pres-ents the local coursing crueltyfestival as a "sporting event"and those who attend it as"sports people".
"Clonmel is noted in greyhoundcircles for being the home of theannual National Hare CoursingMeeting in early February," anotice on the hotel's Attractions &Events page outlines.and that a coursing video was tobe shown nightly at the hotel.Clonmel Park Conference,Leisure & Spa Hotel is part of theBrennan Hotels Group. ICABShas told management that at thisyear's Sevenhouses coursingmeeting, 12 hares were hit bygreyhounds, 1 hare was killed, 4hares were injured and 1 harewas put down because of injuries.Kilkenny's Springhill Court hotel,which is also part of the Brennangroup, had stated in a coursingbooklet advert: "the best of luck toSevenhouses coursing club"."Included in this event is theprestigious Ladies' InternationalOpen Meeting and the coursingderby."The hotel has previously beenurged to disassociate from cours-ing. In an advert placed in acoursing booklet, the hotelextended a "welcome to all visi-tors to the national coursing meet-ing". The advert also highlightedthat the hotel is "just 5 minutesdrive from the coursing grounds""It is absolutely incredible that amodern hotel chain unashamedlyassociates with an animal crueltyactivity which causes injury anddeath to hares," we stated in anemail to the company."It is surprising that you don'ttake into consideration the factthat businesses which back ani-mal cruelty risk being shunned bypotential customers among themajority who oppose blood-sports."

IRISH FOX cubs face weeks ofbloody barbarity during thecubhunting season.
Fox earths are surrounded byfoxhunters who goad theirhounds into attacking and killingthe defenceless infants - all partof a merciless training exercisefor new foxhunting hounds.Cub hunting takes place in thedepths of the countryside in theearly hours after dawn. Huntersbring their hounds to an earth andflush out the cubs within. Thedefenceless creatures areattacked, dragged to the groundand bitten to death.This brutality is carried out tointroduce new hounds to the tasteof fox blood ahead of anotherhunting season. It also serves todisperse foxes - siblings ofslaughtered cubs are scatteredso that their wider distribution willlater provide a larger huntingarea.The hunters like to refer to theirbarbarity as 'Autumn hunting' buttheir euphemism doesn't disguisethe fact that it's one of Ireland'snastiest acts of cruelty.
Save defenceless cubsfrom horrors of hunting
ACTION ALERT
Contact Agriculture MinisterSimon Coveney now anddemand that a huntingexemption is removed fromthe Animal Health andWelfare Bill 2012 and that afull ban on digging out andterrierwork is introduced.

Keep hunters off your land
If you are a landowner, makeyour land off-limits to hunters.Encourage all land-owningfriends to show compassionand make their land a havenfor wildlife. If hunters aredenied access to land, theresident wildlife will be sparedthe suffering of cubhuntingand foxhunting. If trespassoccurs, contact the Gardai.Obtain photo/video evidencewhenever possible.
 Ask Minister why unlawfulanimal traps weren't seized
FINIANMcGrath, TD has askedthe Minister for Arts andHeritage why Nooski traps (ille-gal under the Wildlife Act) werenot seized by the NationalParks and Wildlife Service.
The cruel Nooski trap kills itsmouse and squirrel victims by amethod of strangulation - the ani-mal enters a tunnel, pushes pasta trigger and causes a small rub-ber ring to be released onto itsneck or chest. It is then thrownfrom the trap and dies a few feetaway with the ring still in placearound its body.In his unsatisfactory 24th June2012 response, Minister JimmyDeenihan outlined that instead ofthe illegal traps being seized anddestroyed, they were insteadreturned to a supplier in England.Please join us in asking MinisterDeenihan and the NPWS whythere has been a reluctance toconfiscate the traps, given thefact that they are unquestionablyunlawful under the existing legis-lation.
