In 2016, a majority of UK MPs actually voted to ban snares outright but this was disregarded by the government. They introduced a voluntary code of practice, but it’s really failing to protect wildlife. Nationally this includes badgers, foxes, otters, pets and both brown and mountain hares. HIT have worked extensively on this issue and we really want to bring snaring to an end.
Please contact your MP to ask them to ban snares. The link to do so is here: https://animalaid.e-activist.com/page/79890/action/1 with more info on the campaign here: https://www.animalaid.org.uk/the-issues/our-campaigns/wildlife/snares/
