Three suspected hare coursers were arrested outside a travellers’ site in Market Harborough after a 50-mile chase which went across three counties.
The trio have all been arrested on suspicion of hare coursing at Quadring Fen and failing to stop for police.
A police helicopter and officers from Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire were involved in the pursuit, which ended about 11.30am on Thursday.
A spokesman for Lincolnshire Police said: “Police were alerted to a Subaru Legacy in the area of Quadring Fen.
“After failing to stop for police, it is believed the vehicle entered Leicestershire before being stopped by police in Northamptonshire.
