gentle greyhound...abandoned after racing.
dublin / animal rights / news report Thursday August 22, 2013 18:54 by Bernie Wright   image 1 image
The Alliance for Animal Rights group AFAR wish to condemn the IGB who are fully responsible for the serious injuring of Four healthy Greyhounds who were made race at the ETS Derby in Shelbourne Park last week. All of these dogs were badly injured at the track, including being ‘KOd’ knocked over and sustaining bone breakages including broken legs and hocks. We surmise some of these dogs risk being killed as their racing careers are most likely ended and they are possibly only of use as stud dogs.

Zoos, prisons for the innocent...always
dublin / animal rights / opinion/analysis Friday August 09, 2013 23:02 by Bernie Wright   image 1 image
AFAR wish to condemn the incident at Dublin zoo which occurred two days ago which left a two year old child unconscious, and with deep stomach and arm injuries caused by an animal attack by a Tapir . Apart from the obvious stupidity of allowing a child into an enclosure confining a wild animal with their young, Dublin Zoo is guilty of imprisoning, confining, drugging and using wild animals for profit on an ongoing basis.
They [Dublin Zoo] admit themselves on their website that tapirs are always found near water and usually run into rivers to escape predators such as the jaguar. Where could this Mother and newborn escape to in the Zoo enclosure, to flee from what most likely was perceived as a threat from hearing the human child scream.

WATERFORD : BARBARIC PIG FARMER WHO USED SLEGE-HAMMER ON PIGS NOW ON THE TAX DEFAULTERS LIST.

A farmer who single-handedly slaughtered almost 4,000 pigs in a frenzied attack after a banned food additive was discovered on his farm was ordered to pay over €71,000 in fines and legal costs. Pig farmer Thomas Galvin from Ballinamuck, Dungarvan, Co Waterford denied 29 charges brought against him. Galvin was found guilty of a string of offences including the movement of pigs onto and off restricted lands following the discovery of a highly toxic additive, Carbadox, in April 2002.

Hare coursing and foxhunt clubs crave good PR. In recent days they've got the opposite: Mega pop star Paoblo Nutini denounced bloodsports after attending a hunt ball in Westmeath without realising its connection to foxhunting...and then members of the Irish Council Against Blood Sports captured horrific footage of hare maulings at the so-called "Irish Cup" coursing festival at Limerick racecourse. Now one of the most important Irish cultural iniatives of recent decades has effectively disowned the cruel baiting of live animals for "sport"...

On February 23rd and 24th, members of an anti blood sports campaign group attended part of the so-called “Irish Cup” live hare coursing event, which was held on Limerick racecourse and sponsored by multi millionaire businessman JP McManus. They managed, in spite of an official ban on “unauthorised photography” that apples to all hare coursing events, to film some of the action.

Good news from Northern Ireland .

Dogs docked before this date may still be shown under current legislation.

Re- THE BAN BY DUNNES STORES ON ANIMAL CHARITY COLLECTORS.
……POSSIBLY A REASON FOR THE 'CHARITY COLLECTORS 'STOPPAGE BY DUNNES STORES
ARE BLOODSPORTS PEOPLE REALLY THIS NASTY???

We refer to the ban by the Dunnes Store’s chain on allowing Animal charities to collect at their many shops.
This has shocked many welfare groups as no explanation has be given despite radio and newspaper coverage.

We were informed yesterday by a posting on the PRO RACING and COURSING forum GREYHOUND NUTS that the once vocal Pro stag- hunting group Rise [rural Ireland says Enough]were behind the ban by Dunnes Stores. We enclose the page from the blog below which is run by Tom Brett of Cork.

Unfortunately as Dunnes Stores will not answer questions put to them we cannot verify this revelation. We invite you to investigate further in an effort to explain the strange ‘less than compassionate ‘ stance that they have adopted.

AFAR feels to alienate any worthwhile cause without explanation is unjust. read full story / add a comment

The Association of Hunt Saboteurs will be holding a lively demonstration outside Dail Eireann on 1st February to coincide with the start of the ICC coursing Final in Powerstown Park Clonmel.
We will have some Dail members present and will be again highlighting the upcoming Private members bill to ban coursing being brought before the Dail by TDs Clare daly and Maureen O Sullivan.
Hare Coursing is a melting pot of many ills that need to be extinguished.

Focus on indoctrinating children.
A focus of this year’s final seems to be the influx of children expected at Clonmel’s Powerstown Park.
• A Greyhound supporters forum GREYHOUND NUTS is discussing the fact that lots of school children will attend this event
