A message from the local police:
'A thank you must go out to the residents who called in re males potentially hare coursing on fields out near Rock Lane last week - not enough evidence when I located them leaving the area to progress hare coursing offences but they were all from different addresses in Walsall and claimed they’d come all this way just to walk their dogs !! – so they were given £200 fixed penalties for Covid-19 lock down breaches. I’ve no doubt in reality they were disturbed before they got chance to get up to wrong-doings though.'
Repeated message therefore that if people see strangers with dogs or vehicles, especially 4x4 types, parked in fields or laybys in rural areas, please consider they may be hare coursing and call police on 101.
