Voiced by Jeremy Barrett

Leveret is a hare who appears in the books and the TV series. He is the son of Hare and Mrs Hare and travels with his parents from Farthing Wood to White Deer Park in the first book, but he is not born until the animals reach the park in the TV series. Leveret mates with a female hare in the park who gives birth to his daughter Dash, along with several other leverets.


Early appearancesEdit

Leveret is unnamed during his first two appearances in which he makes the journey to White Deer Park with his parents and their other young leveret, before surviving the animals' first winter in the reserve, although his sibling is killed and eaten by a stoat.

Fox's FeudEdit

By the animals' first spring in the park Leveret has grown to full size and has become fully independent. He witnesses the killing of his mother by Scarface and tells the other animals what happened. After the death of Scarface, Leveret, like several other animals in the group, finds himself a mate within the park.

The Siege of White Deer ParkEdit

Leveret is present during the animals' meeting to discuss whether there is a creature terrifying the park's inhabitants, and appears on various other occasions during the spring. When The Beast goes on a killing spree in Farthing Wood territory, Leveret narrowly escapes being killed but his mate is killed instead. After the Beast leaves the park, Leveret is the only one of the animals to encounter Adder, but he does not understand the snake's comment that he has become interested "in a new association".

In the Path of the StormEdit

Leveret is chased and terrorised by Trey as he rests in the sun and later appears at the meeting of elders to discuss the problem with the stag, during which he states his belief that no other stag will be able to beat him at the rut. He is also one of the animals who makes the trip to the pond to show Trey that he cannot stop them from drinking there.

Battle for the ParkEdit

Leveret appears a few times in this book, often trying to calm Dash down when she comes to him with news. During the final battle against the rats, Leveret and Dash run off to alert all the park's inhabitants of the battle so they can come and help the Farthing Wood animals to rid the park of the threat.

Trivia Edit

  • He doesn't have a speaking role in the T.V. Series until Series 3, in where he speaks with a Scouse accent.
