A hare courser and his dog were found in a field near Isleham after leaving his vehicle with no tax, no insurance and a bald tyre.
Rural police seized the car and gave a ticket for the tyre.
The courser and his dog were found in a field nearby, where he was reported and dispersed from Cambridgeshire.
It came as part of Operation Galileo, which sees police across the county disrupt illegal poaching such as hare coursing.
People took to social media to express their concern on the Policing East Cambridgeshire page.

One comment read: "The vehicles are always untaxed and uninsured - this is a crime in itself and we all have to pay for it indirectly through taxes and insurance premiums.
"The damage that they cause to farmers property is also a criminal act. Irrespective of this and whether you agree or not, coursing with dogs is illegal; it is a crime."
