Three men sought after dogs sent to kill hare

Police Scotland has appealed for information after a hare coursing incident.

At 4.15pm on Tuesday, two dogs were seen to catch and kill a hare on farmland in the Thornton area.

Three men were seen on foot with the dogs.

One man was described as in his late thirties, 6ft, of stocky build with short blond hair. He was wearing a light-coloured sweatshirt and dark trousers.

The other two were in their twenties, shorter than the first and of smaller build with short dark hair. One had sharp facial features and both wore dark clothing. All three had hoods and hats on.

The dogs were described as a brindle brown greyhound and a larger, tan greyhound.

Sergeant Chris Mutter, of Glenrothes Police Station, said: “The men were seen and heard shouting and whistling for their dogs off Balbeggie Avenue and Grantsmuir Road.

“I am keen to speak to anyone who recognises the men from their descriptions.”
