John Fitzgerald has recently published Bad Hare Days, an account of his days as an animal rights activist. Fitzgerald describes his non-violent protest of hare coursing in Ireland.
Hare coursing is the pursuit of hares by greyhounds, which track the hares by sight and not scent. The hares are sometimes overtaken and killed by the dogs. In the book, Fitzgerald discusses the controversy with coursing and the price he paid for standing up for his beliefs.
