Police urge Rushcliffe communities to report any incidents of hare coursing.
Police on patrol in Rushcliffe villages said:
‘PC 1930 Kemish has been out on proactive patrols this evening following the first few reported incidents of hare coursing since fields have been harvested in recent weeks, particularly in the Langar and Barnstone area.
‘Members of the public are urged to remain vigilant regarding possible hare coursing incidents as this not only causes distress and harm for local wildlife but also causes significant damage to private land, gates and other items owned by local land owners or farmers.’
‘When reporting an incident, which can be done by calling 101 or 999, members of the public are encouraged to use the What 3 Words app on their mobile device, this pinpoints your exact location and gives it a 3 word tag – this is extremely useful for officers responding to hare coursing as this often occurs in extremely rural and expansive locations.’
