Police close in on hare coursers
POLICE combating hare coursing are urging the public to be vigilant after a spate of incidents this month.
Cambridgeshire police’s rural crime team has had 11 incidents reported since October 1, most of which appear to be early morning and late evening. Heydon is one of the main areas affected.
Inspector Ian Ford said: “Hare coursing is a seasonal problem and we are now getting to that time of year when hare coursing is most common.
“Officers will respond to all incidents and are utilising a range of different tactics to catch and convict offenders.
“A couple of letters have been sent out to car owners who were seen in suspicious circumstances warning them of our patrols and intelligence is being gathered.
