Four men charged for hunting animals with dogs


8th Oct 2017

Four men have been charged following an alleged incident of poaching in Lincolnshire.

The men from Rotherham have been charged with hunting wild mammals with dogs following the alleged incident that was reported in Irnham overnight on Friday October 6 and Saturday October 7.

Carl Fantom, 31 of Wales Road, Kiveton Park, Rotherham, Christopher Hancock, 54 of Church Lane, Dinnington, Rotherham, Liam Hancock, 25 of Woodland Drive, North Anston, Rotherham and Ethan Hardy, 18 of Narrow Lane, North Anston, Rotherham have all been bailed and will appear at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Thursday November 9.

Four dogs and a car were also seized in connection with this incident. The dogs will be cared for in approved kennels and an application will be made for the dogs to be re-homed.

The arrests come as part of Operation Galilieo, which is part of the rural crime strategy to combat illegal hare coursing.

Last year, Op Galileo saw around 250 offenders dealt with by being arrested, ordered to leave the county or given a warning, plus 40 vehicles and 31 dogs were seized.

The seizure of dogs, some of which are worth many thousands of pounds, is an extremely effective deterrent.

    1. Hi Steve. I’m not sure but I think that they are euthanized because they have been trained to kill and can’t be re-trained.
      However, I’ve just asked an experienced hunt sab, so I’ll let you know when he replies, if he does.
