Take action to ban snares!


Take action to ban snares!

Please sign our petition to the Scottish Parliament

League Against Cruel Sports, Advocates for Animals, the International Otter Survival Fund, Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue and we, the undersigned, call on the Scottish Parliament to pass an Order under the Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act 2004 to ban the manufacture, sale, possession and use of all snares in Scotland.

We believe that snares are cruel, indiscriminate traps. It is unacceptable that they are still being used to capture and kill Scotland's animals. We seek a ban on snares as a matter of urgency.

The Scottish Government recently announced that it does not intend to ban snaring, instead proposing to introduce measures to regulate the continued use of these cruel and indiscriminate traps. Such measures are unacceptable - only a full ban on snares will stop the widespread suffering of animals.

With just a few clicks you can quickly and easily send a pre-drafted message to the Scottish Government Minister to express this view, and take part in other campaign actions if you choose.
