Nocton Fen - prosecution

Man fined for hare coursing

A man has been fined for hare coursing at Nocton Fen as part of Lincolnshire Police’s ongoing operation against the illegal blood sport.

Lincolnshire Police had requested for the forfeiture of the man's dog and car, however no such order was made.

Chief Superintendent Mark Housley stated after the hearing:
"It is fair to say that we are disappointed with the outcome of this case. We recognise that hare coursing has a significant impact on the rural community, not only in the act itself, which is cruel and very unpleasant, but also in respect of the damage frequently caused by these individuals, the threats, abuse and harassment delivered and the reckless and unsafe driving on our roads."
