Help save the haggis..

Every year over 100'000 haggis are needlesy slaughtered in haggis processing centres around the country to cater for the ever increasing popularity of Scottish haggis.Once the highlands of Scotland where teeming with these cute creatures but modern day intensive farming has caused the numbers of wild haggis to decline sharply.

The haggis are farmed on the summit of the hills before being forced towards the pipes.The force of gravity is then used to hurl the haggis downwards towards the lethal squashers.These squasers are touted as being 'modern and humane' towards the haggis but the end result is the same.

Haggis are needlessly tortured and suffer absolute agony before finally dying in this 'humane way' by the despicable squashers.Once processed these haggis are sold all over the World.For Scots and would be Scots to celebrate the great poet Robert Burns.

Burns suppers have become increasingly popular,thus creating even more suffering for these poor innocent creatures.

We are NOT asking for a total ban on Burns suppers or indeed a total ban on haggis.

Artificial haggis that is just as tasty can be made using white pudding and haggis can still be farmed but in a more humane way.

Please give this some serious thought.If invited to a Burns supper,insist on artificial haggis.

Oh, my! I had to do a little research. Because there is such a demand for Haggis, I wonder why a more humane way can not be procured for, well, the inevitable slaughter of these animals. Squashers?

One should never knock what one has never tried, but I think I'll pass on any Robert Burn's suppers. Lungs cannot be processed in the USA so we could never produce an "authentic" Burns supper.

Sensuous,thats good news i will pass it on. America has banned the import of authentic haggis and now only imports artificial haggis for there Burns suppers,this should save tens of thousands of haggis from the cruel squashers.

Haggis can be eaten all year round,i only eat the artificial variety with tatties and nee-ps.

Them haggises are fast lil devils, they are! I was out huntin' snipe a week or two back and ran upon a bunch of them frisking around the melon patch. Couldn't get a clear shot at one, but I'll have better luck next time. I ordered a pack if Haggis Bait from L.L. Bean for the next trip out. Is it legal to hunt them over a baited field where you are??? Later

"Eat more's what put the lead in R. Burns pencil!"

kyplowboy22,i am guessing you are asking is it legal to bait and shot snipe,not bait and shot haggis.To be honest i do not no,i am more a bird watcher than a bird shooter,if you have to shot one or two birds to eat,then so be it,but if it is just for so called sport then i am agaisnt that,the birds are for everyone to enjoy not just a few who take delight in killing them.

Yeah keep eating them haggis,but make sure they are the artifical type.
