Two men will appear in court charged with poaching and COVID-19 offences.

On the afternoon of Saturday 23 January 2021, police were called to a report that suspected poachers were chasing hares with a dog in a field near Chapel Haddlesey, Selby.

North Yorkshire Police officers attended immediately, and arrested two men in their 30s.

They were taken to custody, and both subsequently charged with hunting a wild mammal with dog, and breaching COVID-19 restrictions. One was also charged with motoring offences. They have been given bail conditions not to enter the Selby district.

They will appear at York Magistrates Court on 23 February 2021.
