Wildlife Management Technique Review: Killing Neck Snares Used to Capture Canids in Canada

March 1, 2015

Click to read a review of the humaneness and selectivity of killing neck snares used to capture canids, including wolves, coyotes and red foxes. The authors recommend “…the Agreement on International Humane Trapping Standards be modified to allow only killing neck snares that kill quickly and consistently, and in the absence of such snares, to phase-out all killing snares for which efficient and more humane alternatives exist.”

More logging appeared imminent because vandalized landscapes, just like homes with broken windows, tend to invite more abuse.” Andrew Nikiforuk. This tells it all, whether oil and gas, logging, OHVs etc. already exist, then it seems governments are gung ho to keep going and open it all up to more activity and abuse. . . and why we need AWA more than ever.
