Police tackle illegal hare coursing

Police forces in our region have launched a fresh campaign to tackle illegal hare coursing.

They say the activity - where dogs are set free to chase hares - is becoming more common here, and that some coursers have threatened landowners with violence.

Now police from Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire have got together to launch Operation Galileo: and they are warning they will get tough with anyone they catch.
