Good news in the Cambridge News - crush 'em all!
Here's the picture that pleases and here's the link to the good news in the Cambridge News:
As a follow-up, I have sent the following letter to the Cambridge News:
ALL hare coursing is illegal!
Congratulations and thanks to our Cambridgeshire police for catching hare coursers and to our Ely magistrates for ordering their vehicle to be crushed.
However, your headline, 'Illegal hare coursers find it's a crushing experience,' has the potential to mislead. Thanks to the Hunting Act 2004 (which was passed with support from all parties), ALL hare coursing is now illegal, as are other so-called 'sports' such as fox hunting and stag hunting.
I write this as a farmer and as a born-and-bred countryman and I know that there are millions like me who do not wish to see re-legalised these loathsome practices.
Keep it up, Cambridgeshire police and magistrates: crush 'em all!
