There was anger this week after pictures emerged of the mass slaughter of mountain hares in the Highlands.
Hundreds of the animals were wiped out in one shoot in the Cairngorms.
Animal charities reacted with fury and called for the killing to be made illegal.
Meanwhile, there have been allegations that fox hunters have been flouting laws banning killing with hounds.
