Ruth Archer 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean? (99* d) RE: 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean? 17 Feb 11


Hi Jim,

I understand, and I'm not a big fan of the hunt myself. But I know a lot of people round here who shoot. Yes it's sport that they heartily enjoy, but they also eat what they kill (or give it to their neighbours, ie me). I do like a rabbit or a pheasant - or indeed, a hare, and would never turn one down if it was offered. While the person who killed it might have enjoyed the sport, the animal also had a better quality of life than many farm animals. It's also healthier than most meat.

I can understand vegetarians objecting to the whole business. But as a carnivore, I don't have a lot of trouble with the majority of people who shoot for sport, and for the pot, in the countryside.
