    SPORT: COURSING

    Script is copyright Reuters Limited. All rights reserved

    Background: Visnews filmed coursing the Spanish way at the Los Carabancheles ranch for the 12th Castile Cup during this month's National Military Greyhound Championship and races.

    The hounds are descendants of the greyhound. The hare's best ally is the bushy terrain. But the pursuit is merciless. Harassed, tired, the hare runs between the legs of the horses, scampering for illusory shelter. Seconds...perhaps minutes and horses and hounds run the hare to ground.

    For the hare: death. For the best huntsman: silver cups. For the best dog: trophies.
