The UK is one of a minority of European Member States that still allows snares to be used.

Whilst the Kennel Club has had no direct involvement with the political debate surrounding the use of snares, we are concerned that the due to the entirely unselective nature of these traps, any number of dogs may be caught or killed.

That they can trap, severely injure or at worst kill a pet dog is frightening for many dog owners who live in the countryside.

We believe that Government must take action to ensure that pet animals are not caught up in these traps.
