Dogs and car seized as three suspected hare coursers arrested

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of hare coursing offences after a dispersal order was put in place on the weekend.

Lincolnshire Police attended a report of hare coursing at Mallard Hurn, Donington, at 8.28am on 20 November.

A 4×4 car was located in the field and officers arrested three men aged 33, 39, and 40.

Police seized the car, and three hounds which have been taken to local kennels.

The three men from Nottingham, Reading and Bracknell Forest, have been released on police bail.

Investigations are ongoing.

Hare coursing is a crime which involves dogs being used to chase, catch, and kill hares and often includes the betting of large amounts of money.

Offenders are entering, and causing damage to, private land across Lincolnshire and it has become a real concern and problem for our rural communities.

The act of hare coursing involves cruelty to animals and there is a strong association with offenders committing other criminal offences whilst in the county.
