Police issue warning over suspected hare coursing
- Credit: Essex Police
A man has been issued with a community protection warning for hare coursing in Felsted.
Officers from the Essex Police Rural Engagement Team were on patrol when they saw suspected hare coursing on land off Dunmow Road on November 12.
Police work closely with rural and farming communities and partner agencies to combat this issue which was banned in 2004. Hare coursing also damages crops.
This year the team has already reported a number of people for hare coursing, have seized vehicles, and reported drivers for various traffic offences.
They also helped to rehome abandoned coursing dogs that were being mistreated.
