Hypocrisy of the Coursing Club

MANY of your readers are by now acquainted with the 'dying hare' video, which shows the little creature's agonising demise on the premises of Powerstown Park, Clonmel, Co Tipperary.

The reaction of the coursing faithful is absolutely bizarre, even ludicrous. I have read with incredulity their self-righteous expressions of injured innocence and wronged virtue.

Come off it, lads. Are you the same people who for years used hares as live bait in order to test greyhounds for 'sport' -- and were totally unmoved when those that failed to make good their escape were torn limb from limb before your very eyes?
