Ban the use of snares in England

I work in a wildlife hospital & we deal with wild animals with horrific injuries after being caught in snares. We have many photos to prove the damage done by these inhumane cheese-wires. Domestic pets have also been severely injured by snares.
A ban on their use is long overdue.

        Are we in the 21st Century? I thought these practices were something employed in the dark age when there was no choice and life was about survival and it was truly hard. Obviously I am wrong.... There are lots of unintended consequences in using snares regardless of the inhumane practice this is, for both other animals, pets and children - perhaps your child or grandchild, but those who choose to use snares have not given this aspect sufficient thought - until one day there is an accident.....hindsight is a great thing to have - why wait. Please find an alternative. It is so unnecessary.

        We shouldn't have to campaign for this, it should be common sense. Where is the compassion in our society

        I cannot see how leaving a bit of cheese wire lying around in the open is even remotely a sane thing to do. To then assume that it will catch and cut to ribbons only your target species is beyond comprehension. These things are on sale for a pittance when they should be outlawed due to the damage they do and the suffering they cause.

        It is about time this barbaric practice came to an end.

        It is a disgrace. I'm with 38 degrees, so let's hope it helps to end these barbaric acts.

        There is no possible justification for the use of these vicious devices on any living creature.

        Snares are indiscriminate and inhumane. They cause unimaginable, prolonged suffering. Such barbarity has no place in modern civilised society. Please help to ban them.

        ban these evil things, we are not a civilised society while humans are allowed to use these barbaric, cruel, evil snares

        i support this ban on no snares its exremely cruel and the animals endure a lot of pain.

        I support a ban on these barbaric snares.

        The use of snares to catch wild animals is not only barbaric and outdated, it also causes needless suffering when there are such things as humane traps which can then be used to transport a wild animal to another area and then released.

        This initiative is not before time. I live in the rural countryside and it is common to find dead animals attached to these cruel, cruel snares. Sometimes the animal has tried to chew its own leg off in it's frenzy to escape from the pain. These are monstrous and there is no place for them in a civilised society.
