Wildlife research for a quick “humane” death from snares finds just the opposite occurs!

Posted on March 18,2016

Wildlife research for a quick “humane” death from snares finds just the opposite occurs!

A retired predator-control expert says animals in snares take hours or even days to die.

“There is just a multitude of things that interfere with getting the perfect catch.”

Snares are perfectly legal in Montana and their price of $2 leads to their widespread popularity. We also have no required trap check time interval. How long it takes the animal to strangle to death or by chance escape with the cable cut into them is unknown.

Lastly, if a qualifer to support trapping was a quick death, is that what you would want for your dog, an eagle, an elk, a lynx, a mountain lion, or any of the indiscriminate victims of trapping? A quick death and no chance of surviving?
