Q29: I have illegal hare coursers on my land every weekend, what can I do?

Hare coursing is illegal under the Protection of Wild Mammals (Scotland) Act 2002. It is illegal to deliberately hunt a hare with a dog or knowingly facilitate or permit land to be used for a hare-coursing event. If you believe hare coursing is happening on your land then contact Police Scotland by dialling 101.
