What is Hare Coursing?

Hare coursing is the pursuit of hares with greyhounds and other sighthounds, which chase the hare by sight, not by scent. In some countries, it is a legal, competitive activity in which dogs are tested on their ability to run, overtake and turn a hare, rather than a form of hunting aiming at the capture of game.

Is it Legal in the UK?

Hare coursing was banned, along with hare hunting, by the Hunting Act 2004, and is illegal, but coursing still takes place. The Hunting Act 2004 specifically bans even being a spectator of these events.
