Snaring

snaring landing page

Snaring is a cruel, indiscriminate, and wholly unnecessary practice that has no place in modern society. Snares are thin wire nooses that are set to trap any animal perceived to be a pest or threat. 

The primitive design of a snare means it silently garrottes its victims, and often leads to a painful and lingering death. Snares are often found on shooting estates, were the gamekeepers attempt to control animals deemed to be a ‘pest’, and that are perceived to threaten the success of the shooting on the estate.

The League Against Cruel Sports believe that a major step forward can be made in terms of wild animal welfare if snares are banned, and we are calling for a total ban on their use.
