The antis ambushed Scotland's political process and, in under a week in June 2020, they pushed through a ban on catching or killing mountain hares. The world of wildlife management has been left reeling. Scottish wildlife manager Niall Rowantree and English 'tourist' falconer Roy Lupton discuss what happened, and what's going to happen to Scotland's hares, with additional material from Clayton Fletcher in South Africa and Jason Doyle in Ireland.
