Noted and signed. I know that snares have been used as far back as original aboriginal tribes, but to keep using them now, as the areas in question become more populated with pets and other animals is ridiculous. That's what live traps are for. If you need to relocate pests, you can then do so.

Thank you for taking action against snares

We should nurture compassionate thought. Since we wish to live, we should not kill any other living being. Furthermore, the karma of killing is understood as the root of all suffering and the fundamental cause of sickness and war, and the forces of killing are explicitly identified with the demonic. The highest and most universal ideal of Buddhism is to work unceasingly for permanent end to the suffering of all living beings, not just humans.

Over the years, I have taken great pleasure in destroying many snares I have found when walking in the countryside. I have also released a number of sheep, lambs, hedgehogs, along with a couple of cats from these vile traps. Regrettably in many cases I got there too late.
I BEG YOU ALL, when you go for a country walk, please take a pair of heavy duty wire cutters with you and cut the snare wires into small pieces and leave the pieces at the site so that who ever the MORON is who set the snare, knows that the area is being watched.

Thank you for taking action against snares

I also used to take wire cutters with me on walks and rides to destroy the snares - and lost a dog to a snare. I searched for him for weeks...for as long as I thought he was still alive...it stays with you forever...I knew he was waiting for me to find him, somewhere in the mountains..
