Während Tierschützer mit dem Wohl und Weh der einzelnen Tiere argumentieren,
argumentieren Coursing-Anhänger mit der Stärke der Hasenpopulationen in einer
auch in Irland zunehmend industriealisierten Landwirtschaft. Egal wofür man sich
als einzelner entscheidet - die Studie ist allemal wert, gelesen zu werden. Ich spare
mir eine Übersetzung des Petitionstextes, weil die Übersetzungsfunktion unter dem

Limerick Racecourse: Do not listen
to animal rights extremists; continue
to support coursing in Ireland for the
sake of the Irish Hare

Petition by
Mark Dennehy
Stepaside, Ireland

The only thing currently standing between the Irish Hare and the
Endangered Species list is the conservation efforts of the Irish
Coursing Club. Scientific studies like Reid, 2010 have shown that
areas with coursing clubs have ten to one hundred times the
density of hare population because of the efforts of those clubs
when compared to the rest of the countryside. The government
has neither the money nor the manpower to do what the ICC
currently does, so there isn't any alternative conservation plan
to fall back on should coursing be banned.

Animal rights extremists also have neither the manpower nor the
money to undertake the scale of conservation efforts the ICC
undertake today; if we were to follow their agenda, we would see
the Irish Hare go extinct as a result of modern agriculture in our
lifetimes. But rather than lobby for change to the government,
these extremists target individuals and groups and threaten their
livelihood to intimidate them into doing what they want. This
petition is an attempt to protest that intimidation and support
those who are targeted by it. It is a message of support to
Limerick Racecourse to say hold firm, and ignore these extremists.
