End Mountain Hare Cull

“As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”

Enough is enough: End the mountain hare killing

“This is the grim, brutal reality for mountain hares in Scotland, exposed in a new investigation by OneKind, League Against Cruel Sports and Lush. Take action now!

Military-style convoys moving from mountain to mountain, killing the hares and filling their pick-ups with dead animals as they go. A hare is shot. Its leg is maimed and it tries to run away, adrenalin helping it overcome the pain. This is the grim, brutal reality for mountain hares in Scotland, exposed in a new investigation by OneKind, League Against Cruel Sports and Lush.”

Help end the culling/slaughter of #MountainHares IN ONE YEAR ALONE 25,000 were killed. Enough is enough, it’s time for the #Scottish Government to end the mass-killing of mountain hares #HareCare Watch the video and please sign the open letter and share :

Take this one small action to make the world a better place for all creatures , all that is required is for you to add your name. Please share widely. Another 1500 or so signatures required to reach the target of 10,000, but even more would be good of course.

This brutality towards helpless animals shames us both as a species and as a nation and should be stopped. The well-off upper classes and equally affluent tourists come to Scotland, and indeed the rest of the UK, with the purpose of killing defenseless animals including grouse, pheasant, deer and of course hares. The fact that governments do little to stop this is disgusting, it is time such barbarity and the encouragement of violence for sport or indeed any other reason should be consigned to history where it belongs.

It is time we asked the questions: What is wrong with the mentality of people who find pleasure in killing an helpless animal? Should we as a nation allow this to continue?  Why isn’t this barbarity and cruelty recognized for what it is, the sickening violence towards a weaker species with whom we share this world.

No wonder there will never be peace in the world while governments allow their citizens to indulge in violence and cruelty to animals as though it is some kind of birthright.

First Minister shares ‘anger’ over hare culling footage:

Mountain hares estimated to have been killed in 2006/07

Mountain hare killing is not monitored in Scotland, however a Scottish National Heritage study estimates 25,000 mountain hares were killed in 2006/07.

This is understood to be between 5-14% of the total population.

Animal campaigners say approximately 40% of those killed are shot for sport shooting, and 50% as part of organised culls.”


Time to end the killing of these creatures, all killing, no licenses for anyone for any reason.  Time not only to end mass culls but all killing of defenseless animals. No Killing full stop! Not one single hare should die for any reason. We have no right to take the life of any creature, it is not our world, we share it with millions of other species.
