LIKE the vast majority of the Scottish public, we believe that our wildlife should be afforded the highest animal welfare standards. We worked constructively with Lord Bonomy and others providing evidence to the review of the hunting ban in Scotland.

We were therefore disappointed to see your report of the unfounded and incendiary accusations made by the pro-hunting lobby, about the League (“ Fox hunters attack plans for new laws”, The Herald, December 5). Like Lord Bonomy and Police Scotland, we simply believe that the law needs strengthening.

Whilst other organisations may choose to spend their time attacking charities, we will maintain our focus on ensuring Scottish wildlife gets the protection it deserves.
