A total of 84 European hares collected from eleven Serbian regions investigated upon cadmium (Cd) and zinc (Zn) presence. Strong statistically significant correlations between Cd concentrations in kidney and liver were registered in animals older than 12 months. Significant differences between Zn concentrations in liver in comparison to kidney were found within every single age group with exception of the oldest. Negative correlation (Ps-Pearsons correlation) between Zn and Cd concentrations were found in liver samples within the age group of 12 months (Ps = -0.67, p = 0.004).
