The horrible reality of grouse moors
OneKind’s Director Bob Elliot and Press & Campaigns Officer Sarah Moyes arrived on the low ground of an infamous driven grouse moor in southern Scotland. They found several snares, which are legal in Scotland despite being banned in many other countries, and a stink pit which is designed to lure animals into the snares.
Snares are indiscriminate and can capture non-target species, as well as household pets, and cause a lot of pain and suffering.
What can you do?
REPORT ANY SNARE SIGHTINGS TO SNAREWATCH– If like Revive, and our coalition partner OneKind, you believe that snares should be banned in Scotland you can report your sightings to the above link, run by OneKind.
Remember and take photos and add as much detail about the location of the snares as you can. If we want to strengthen our calls for a ban then we need as much evidence as we can to remind people and show how dangerous snares really are.
