why ever would you think that

Just my initial impression. In the close up footage the hares seem slow and disoriented and the dogs seem to be pressing them without a great deal of effort. Perhaps it was at the end of a long course? Or maybe just because the hares have never been ran before. Or, more likely, I could be that I'm totally wrong, wouldn't be the 1st time and wont be the last. Nice looking hounds anyway.

South American coursing, they run a Galgo X Greyhound hybrid on the introduced European hare.     

Agree with mc hull there a lot of chasing going on didn’t see any coursing though, hare turning the dogs not other way round. They’ve got speed plenty of it but reckon a good winter hare in this count

i thought the last run in particular was pretty good to be honest that white dog was working that hare well... i know the hares were introduced to south america.....but i wonder who did it....in

You can find videos over here where it looks like the hare is running in quick sand.

There's a Vetinary College near me that has a small colony of Patagonian Mara's in their grounds. Also known as Patagonian Hares;

It would be interesting if there were a few escapee's , or even a planned release.

Just to study them, obviously !😇!

Cheers.

One was caught around 15 years ago in the field just behind my parents house one Early September  just after they had cut the fields .

can they actually run at enough speed to be deemed a challenge to a dog

 

Evidently they can run at up to 28 mph for around a mile.

They live, mostly, above ground on the open pampas, so guess they would need speed, like a hare, to escape predators.

Cheers.
