Two arrested on suspicion of illegal hare coursing
1:27pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
Police arrested two men and are seeking a third after they foiled what they believe was an attempt to hold illegal hare coursing near All Cannings on Sunday.
Officers were called to a field at around 5pm after a blue Land Rover Discovery was seen driving across crops in the field.
The vehicle left the field but was later seen driving along the A361 Beckhampton straight before it turned onto the A4 towards Calne.
The 4x4 was pulled over and two men from Dilton Marsh and Frome were arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage and of daytime trespass in pursuit of game.
They were released pending further enquiries and police are looking for a third man who is thought to come from the Highworth area.
