Illegal "coursing" on the increase in the area

Created on 21/10/2021 @ 07:00
Private landowners in the area have complained to police about the amount of illegal hare coursing taking place on their land.

Dyfed Powys Police said it has received an increased number of call about the issue, also known as lamping.

A spokesperson said: "We ask that land owners in rural locations please remain vigilant, ensuring to keep gates and access points secured.
"We urge any land owners that suspect hare coursing is taking place on their land, to report it to the police immediately, as hare coursing is illegal under the Hunting Act 2004. Any land owners that suspect individuals are using their land to go ‘lamping’, without the landowners permission, should also contact the Police.
"We would ask members of the public not to approach any individuals that are suspected to be hare coursing or lamping. Instead, we ask that you contact the Police and provide as much detail as possible."
