Alert message sent 22/11/2021 11:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland


On Saturday 20th November 2021, a hare coursing day of action was carried out across Midlothian as part of Operation Wingspan and the National Wildlife Crime Prevention Strategy by the Wildlife and Environmental Crime Officer and Community Officers in marked vehicles and Police quad bikes.

High visibility patrols were conducted across identified hot spot areas previously targeted by person’s hare coursing. "Hare coursing is a Crime, not a sport" posters were displayed in various locations.

Engagement was carried out with a number of farmers and land owners, who were also provided with crime prevention advice regarding their farm vehicles following an increase in acquisitive crime and theft of quad bikes.

Positive feedback was received from all those engaged with. Further days of action are planned.
