chase

chase
To pursue or follow rapidly with the intention of catching or driving away.
In English law, the liberty or franchise of hunting, one's self, and keeping protected against all other persons, beasts of the chase within a specified district, without regard to the ownership of the land. The act of acquiring possession of animals ferae naturae by force, cunning, or address. A privileged place for preservation of deer and beasts of the forest. It is commonly less than a forest and of larger compass than a park. Every forest is a chase, but every chase is not a forest. It differs from a park in that it is not inclosed, yet it must have certain metes and bounds. In old English law, a "common" chase was a place where all alike were entitled to hunt wild animals
