Two people have been sentenced under the Hunting Act in relation to hare coursing close to Titchwell, near Hunstanton.
Norfolk police spent a number of hours in January this year on an intensive deployment which saw seven people arrested in relation to hare coursing.
A person had witnessed the incident and came forward with key evidence.
In court two adults were sentenced under the Hunting Act for hunting a wild mammal with dogs.
The Kings Lynn Operational Partnership Team were able to secure a Criminal Behaviour Order for two years on a 38-year-old man.
Conditions on the orde included not to be on farmland without express permission of the land owner and not to be on a public footpath in possession of a lurcher type dog during hunting season, which runs from September 1 until March 30.
There have been reported incidents of hare coursing in Feltwell Anchor, Wissington, Mattishall, Ten mile Bank and Brandon Bank.
