    Went walking with our friends and there Children,and we were all enjoying ourselves.
    This was all spoiled when we came across a snared Fox.
    We were all very upset by this Horific scene,and it ruined our day.

    We live in Suffolk.. sorry to hear that, not a pleasant discovery ... where was this ?

    Perhaps the result of the ban of foxhunting ..

    We were dismayed to come across these in Scotland as I thought they were now illegal. Not so only :running: snares are against the law. Horrible things, but this is the countryside and I am not comfortable with dictating to the folk who spend there lives living there what to do.

    I understood that the use of snares and gin traps was now illegal, there's always some cruel bugger out there :Sad:

    Horrific. The RSPCA will be interested in knowing the location of the snare. Give your local branch a ring.
    I don't want the 'smiley' at the top of this post but I don't know how to get rid of it.

    Not long after we moved to Wales we found a dead badger in a homemade snare in our field. The poor creature had gone round and round trying to get it off until it died. Our cat went missing for two days and he turned up with a wire snare still round his tummy.

    Our dog got into one about 3 years ago.:Eeek: The farmer had put it out to trap what he said was an old fox worrying his geese :whatthe:Good job our dog simply stood still and did not pull or anything :thumb: just looked sorrowful when I was shouting him to come- Gave him praise when I saw what had happened :thumb: Cruel bits of kit but I suppose necessary to some people:Angry:
