The farming community read with disbelief the police figures saying that hare coursing incidents are down by 20 per cent.
We know they are up by 100 per cent and the coursers are getting increasingly violent.
A policeman told me that there wasn’t room on their computer to log all this winter’s hare coursing incidents. The police also tell us they just can’t cope with all the calls of hare coursing incidents they are receiving.
By giving out this false information the police are trying to say that they are doing a good policing job.
This will make the government think that they can cut the police force even more.
How can we ever believe any more information that the police give out?
