From the article:
One tourist believed that haggis was a wild beast of the Highlands, no bigger than a grouse, which only came out at night.
Brilliant stuff!! Thanks for the link!!

Haggis do exist, trust me, Im a Scotsman
This is just to throw people off the scent... we dont want Scotland suddenly deluged with hunters driving our most treasured animal to extinction.
By the way, just in case you dont know, the Haggis is the only animal that has six legs

My PM once tried to convince me that haggis is a bird that lives on top of the mountains, and he went on to add, some of them runs in clockwise direction around the mountain peak, where as some of them in anti-clockwise. And, according to the direction they run, one of their legs are always longer than the other one it seems - well, he almost had me convinced as I could read about this very scottish haggis dish every where in the net!
