Just have a look at the footage...amazing to see so many of these ordinarily solitary creatures bunched together like this.
They'll be forced to run from hyped-up greyhounds and a percentage will be mauled, pinned to the ground, tossed into the air, or otherwise injured for "sport"...all within the confines of a wire enclosed field. Those that make it uninjured through the escape hatch will only have "escaped" back into captivity...to be coursed again.
A protest is planned by the Irish Council Against Blood Sports (ICABS) for the Edenderry hare coursing event this year: That's Saturday, October 17th from 12 noon. The coursing venue is located next to Lidl and Tesco supermarkets. All welcome at protest.
