Police disrupt major hare coursing event in Lincolnshire

Police have successfully disrupted what was intended to be a major hare coursing event in the county this week.

The ‘big event’ was planned for Thursday, November 9, but calls from the local community enabled officers and equipment to be in the area before any hare coursing activity began.

Although no arrests were made, a number of offences were committed by individuals as they attempted to leave the scene, including driving across fields and failing to stop.

One fail to stop incident resulted in minor damage to a police vehicle. There were no injuries.

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Police said: “As part of an ongoing enquiry into those offences, we are asking drivers to check any dash cam footage for Thursday morning to see if they may have captured footage of any of the following vehicles in the following areas:

  • A red Subaru Forrester HF51XKK in the Tongue End and Deeping St Nicholas area
  • A blue Honda CR-V V406RCA in the Tongue End, Pode Hole and Baston area
  • A Green Subaru Forrester (no VRM) in the Donington area
  • A blue Suzuki Vitara Y134 LRF in the Great Hale area

“Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and request that the details are passed to PC Perring.”
