Police are investigating an incident of hare-coursing at a Perthshire estate where the animal was killed by two dogs before been thrown from a car.
The incident occurred in a field at Campmuir Estate near Coupar Angus at about 7:30pm on Sunday.
A blue Subaru Forester was seen to drive into a field, and the driver released two lurcher-type dogs.
The dogs killed a hare, which was retrieved by their owner, then thrown into a corner of the field from the car as it drove away.
The car then travelled towards the Coupar Angus – Kettins road.
There were two men seen in the car, only one of whom got out.
He is described as white, in his 50s, short and of heavy build with short brown hair, and was wearing a grey zip-up top and blue jeans.
