Animal Persecution – The Human Destruction Machine


Destruction – the action or process of causing so much damage to something that it no longer exists. 

The question I ask is simple – will my grandchildren see the animals I see today? The ones I film so people that don’t get the chance to see them can enjoy the images and videos I take?

It can only be called total cruelty (and not a so called sport) for a man to take his dogs out, find a field, and then block that field off so that the poor Brown Hare can’t escape.

Let’s change the scenario.

Let’s take his child, put him in a field and let a wild animal hunt him down.

The Brown Hare like anything else has a family, and that family depends on the adults to survive.

This animal has a hard enough life with natural habitat disappearing at an alarming rate.

When you go out in the morning or you’re out and you see the Brown Hare – it maybe the last time you see it in that area.

Luckily in Lancashire there are farmers and locals who are now caring for this lovely animal and monitoring it.

When I film one it is very hard to get close. When you come across one cleaning it’s face you realise just how beautiful they are.

You can see the horizon in her eye

Over the years I have come across a few at home and near my hide but it is so nice when you’re sat waiting.

One night as the sun was going down a brown hare appeared and posed for me. It didn’t see me, so it was even better just watching it eat and enjoy the evening sun.

We all need to help our wildlife and teaching our children to respect it is a great start.

You don’t have to teach them in-depth details – just explain they don’t hurt you and they only come to your garden for food when they’re hungry.

I hope you enjoy my Brown Hare photos and a few baby rabbits that I took near our site a few years ago.

Prints are available if you see anything you like on any blog or story.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
