Chief Insp Jim Tyner, who heads Operation Galileo – the police operation to catch hare coursers – sent a Tweet today (Saturday) saying: “Caught #harecoursing in #Lincs today, we will seize your car, your dogs & see you in court. #thinkagain #OpGalileo.”

• Police are also today reminding county residents to call them on 999 when they see hare coursing in progress – callers alerting police after the event should dial 101.
