Wanted rabbits and hares from across Ireland

We have been asked if our members would assist a PhD student (Jen Prebble) who is studying rabbit and hare parasites for which we need as many carcasses as possible.


Those shot as game or for pest control and reports of roadkill would be very welcome. We will be examining them for parasites only; no data regarding shooting etc. will be collected. In terms of hares we are interested in both the native Irish hare and the non-native European brown hare.

en has put together the PDF flyer (see attached) and we would be extremely grateful if all our members and supporters would assist in this worthwhile project. Jen can drive and pick up carcasses if records are submitted.
