Scotland: Snaring

 I quote from a press release issued by GWCT today:
"Building on the success of training courses so far, the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust is urging all those who use snares for agricultural and wildlife management to be fully trained and be in possession of the required certificate and user ID number before 1st April 2013."

This is a timely reminder to all those in Scotland who use snares for controlling rabbits & foxes to get registered.  Remember, it will be illegal to set a snare on or after 1st April unless it has the operator's ID number attached.

The press release gives details of training courses and the Snaring Leaflet has more background information.
