I was wondering if anybody could help me with some questions about the Scottish law concerning hunting in the dark. What the rules are, the background and the justification for why you have them.
If you have some links to the legislation online?
I am i law student and a hunter from Norway. Iīm writing my master thesis which is about the rules concerning night hunting in Norway. By Norwegian law hunting during night is not prohibited. Although lighting is not allowed. The hunters are simply abide to exercise human hunting where the animals do not have to experience unnecessary suffering.
But there has been several rulings by the Norwegian courts the last years where night hunters have been accused of inhuman hunting. The legislators have therefor been asked to review our laws and consider that we introduce the same kind of prohibition which for example Sweden and Denmark have.
