Police recovered a 4x4 full of dead rabbits after being alerted to offenders illegally poaching in East Northants.
A number of officers were called to a field near Blatherwycke Road in King’s Cliffe at 1am this morning after a report of suspicious behaviour by a member of the public.
Upon arrival they discovered the car and found three abandoned dogs which they believe were used in harecoursing and poaching, although the offenders had left the scene.
Two gates were also found to be damaged.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any information regarding the offence should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
