North Yorkshire Police
Specialist rural officers at North Yorkshire Police have vowed to reduce poaching even further with the help of tough new legislation.
This week the Government announced new measures to tackle the crime including increasing sentences to up to six months in jail and introducing two new criminal offences relating to trespassing with the intention of hare coursing.
New powers have also been granted for the courts to order, on conviction, the reimbursement of costs incurred by the police in kennelling dogs seized in connection with hare coursing.
