With any luck 2011 will see the publication of a Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) report on the extent of use and humaneness of snares in England and Wales. The report follows a DEFRA commissioned research project which included a 'trial' that ran from 2008 - 2010, more on this below.
Cathy Jamieson MP recently asked the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many animals were used in her Department's research project and how many of those were (a) injured and (b) killed during the research project.
You might be interested in the answer Ms Jamieson received from DEFRA Minister, Mr James Paice:
“A total of 88 animals were used. Of these, two animals were found with visible injuries and were euthanized, four were found dead and a further 43 animals were found alive, then euthanized to allow detailed post mortem examination to determine whether or not they were injured; no injuries were found in these animals.”
If you feel enough is enough please remember this League campaign.
