  • Hare coursing is where a luncher type dog(s) is used to hunt hares. It’s a blood sport and totally illegal. Well done to the police as this type of crime also involves threats intimation to the land owners where the activity takes place. Begs the question why the 12 and 15 year old youths weren’t in school? And proves that these type of people are criminals and involved in other forms of crimes.
