100 YEARS AGO: Sussex Express 15 June 1917. Sale of Hares. Many owners and occupiers are taking steps to reduce the numbers of hares on their lands in order to protect crops and pasturage. Under the existing law, no hares or leverets may be sold or exposed for sale until August 1. In order to prevent the hares now being killed from being wasted and to secure their use as food, the Board of Agriculture have made an order under the Defense of the Realm Regulations allowing hares or leverets to be sold or exposed for sale, by any person entitled by law to do so, notwithstanding the statuary prohibition as to sale in the months of June or July.
