You can be fined £5000 for hare coursing in Norfolk.

As fields are harvested across Norfolk, the rural landscape changes dramatically and with it, the type of rural crimes which happen within our borders.

Without the crops to hide wildlife, illegal hare coursing begins to take place. This crime carries a maximum penalty of £5,000 and can have a severe impact on Norfolk's ecosystems.

Over the weekend of the 24th and 25th September, Norfolk's Rural Crime Team carried out an intelligence led hare coursing operation on a large West Norfolk farming estate.

The team disrupted a number of hare coursers and continue to work with the rural community to identify the offenders.

Spokesman Sgt Mark Askham said:

"It is critical that we engage with our rural community and are able to facilitate bespoke methods to tackle concerns of rural crime. The foundations of our rural community are strong and the weekends activity is an example of how Norfolk Constabulary has responded effectively to a type of rural criminality which will not be tolerated."
