Accessory Mascots

Animals - Other:  Running Hare.

1920s French silvered bronze mascot of a running hare, this mascot was also made by AEL and was in someway attributed to the sport of hare coursing.  The National Hare Coursing Club was founded in 1858.  The sport was banned here in the UK in February 2005 under the newly introduced Hunting Bill.  The club still holds legal hare coursing event all over the country, however the idea is not to rip the hare apart with the dogs but simply for the dogs to chase the hare, they are awarded points for strength, stamina and agility.  The aim is not to kill the hare.
