Bid to stamp out hare-coursing

Local MP Graham Stuart launched the Country Land and Business Association’s national campaign against hare-coursing on Friday (March 9). Mr Stuart told Beverley FM: “Hare-coursing is not only against the law itself, but the lawbreakers who travel into rural areas to carry it out leave a trail of devastation behind them.”

He continued: “We need to make the countryside a no-go area for these criminals. Farmers find stock disturbed, their crops ruined, fences broken, and farm equipment stolen. Despite the difficulties of policing rural areas, Humberside Police has a good record in catching and prosecuting these offenders. I applaud the CLA for focussing on this issue and bringing it to the national stage. I will do all I can to help stamp out this unacceptable crime.”
