A CAR used by hare coursers was seized yesterday by Gloucestershire Police.
The force’s rural crime team posted on their Twitter page: “Another hare courser’s vehicle seized and another court case for the record.”
Hare coursing is a bloodsport where dogs are used to chase, catch and kill hares.
It is illegal in the UK under the Hunting Act 2004, which makes it an offence to hunt wild mammals with dogs. Anyone convicted of the offence can receive a fine of up to £5,000.
