Snaring in Scotland
New laws in Scotland are to be enforced as of the 1st of April 2013. These state that each snare being set must be labelled, GPS tagged and logged in a book. This is after “free running snares” have been outlawed North of the bordered, and a stopper must now be fitted 13 cm’s from the free running end of the snare (rabbits). Townie reactionary lobbying? or a step in the right direction for animal welfare? What do you think?
