Lincolnshire hare coursers fined more than £2.5k


4th April 2018

A prolific hare courser and three others were handed fines totalling £2,695 after they were found guilty of trespassing on Lincolnshire land to hunt with dogs.

Three men and a 17-year-old were fined in relation to a hare coursing incident at Gedny Hill on December 13, 2017.

Aaron Smith, a 24-year-old prolific hare courser from New Causeway, Reigate, Surrey, has been fined £1,015 and given a three year Criminal Behaviour Order, which bans him from entering onto any private land in Lincolnshire with a sighthound, greyhound, long dog or lurcher type dog.

He has also been banned from accompanying anyone with these types of dogs, until he has a written permission of the landowner, and ordered to have his dogs microchipped.

Alfie Chambers, 39, of Molesey Close, Hersham, Surrey received fines and costs totalling £690.

Leonard Doe, 36, of Bishops Grove, Hampton, Surrey received fines and costs totalling £620.

The court also ordered to take away his car.

The 17-year-old, who has not been named by police, received fines totalling £370.

However, an application for removing three dogs that were used in hare coursing was not granted.

Warning against such behaviour, Superintendent Mark Housley said: “This is Lincolnshire’s third Criminal Behaviour Order for hare coursing. This, coupled with the heavy fines imposed, gives a clear message that hare coursers are not welcome in Lincolnshire.”

  1. It’s good that these scum are fined but it would be better if they were prosecuted for the right reason – cruelty to animals and not because they are p…ing off the farmers!

  2. I imagine most of you will already have received this petition but if not, please sign and spread far and wide.

    Thank you.
