Irish Coursing Club president, Brian Divilly, forcibly removes two Irish Council Against Blood Sports monitors from a hare coursing meeting in Powerstown Park, Clonmel on 1st February 2014.
As they try to film the hare running for its life on the field, Brian Divilly grabs both female observers by their arms and forcefully pulls them away.
This video shows what happens and includes footage, filmed earlier on that day, of one of the hares running for its life from greyhounds.
