The Scout Association are teaching children to  butcher our threatened wildlife!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

Our beautiful hares are in serious decline due to habitat loss, disease and illegal hunting. It's now come to light they are also being shot for the Scout Association's 6 to 8 year old members to be taught how to skin and butcher them as part of their outdated survival skills badge! However you feel about eating meat, this activity has to stop, as hares desperately need our help, not yet another avenue of persecution. Please sign this petition and help us try to end this needless slaughter for nothing more than a child's badge and encourage them to teach children about the true value of our wildlife as it should be: alive and well, enriching our environment. Thank you for your support.
