Three men fined for hare coursing

Three men have been fined for illegally hunting hares with dogs.

Jason Bradford, 37, from Walsall, Tom Connors, 22, from Cardiff, and Brian Powell, 43, from Pontypool, were arrested near Faringdon last year.

They were held as part of a crackdown on hare coursing in Oxfordshire called Operation Migrate.

Bradford and Powell were fined 500 and ordered to pay 315 costs at Oxford Magistrates Court. Connors was fined 330 and also told to pay 315 costs.

Charges against a 15-year-old boy were dropped.
