[16] Hares when found by hounds and pursued sometimes cross brooks and double back and slip into gullies or holes. The fact is they are terrified not only of the hounds, but of eagles as well; for they are apt to be snatched up while crossing hillocks and bare ground until1 they are yearlings, and the bigger ones are run down and caught by the hounds.

1 Not “so long as”; cf. 14.
