-----so I want to know what happens. Those taking part in the illegal activity are just doing so because they can. The greyhounds are not muzzled so they can carry on and do what they like with the hares, and we know that the blooding of greyhounds goes on, so there must be some crossover. Mr Histon says the ICC is working with the Garda and the National Parks and Wildlife Service on this. It would be good to see the ICC ban people from the club because they are doing this.
