‘Farmers facilitating blood sport in Inishowen’ – claim

A local animals rights advocate is worried that a number of landowners here are allowing young rabbits on their land to be used for ‘coursing’ – a blood sport activity in which greyhounds or lurchers are encouraged to chase after rabbits to work on their speed.

The person, who did not wish to be named publicly, claimed that local farmers are complicit in animal cruelty by allowing men to “come onto their ground and perpetrate this heinous crime”.

The Inishowen Independent has since learned that a number of prosecutions in Donegal, including at least one here in Inishowen, are pending in relation to this type of activity.
