The National Gamekeepers’ Organisation (NGO) has backed the new Code of Best Practice on the Use of Snares in Fox Control, which was published on 25 September 2015 by Welsh Government. The NGO has been at the heart of delivering a new, workable fox-snaring code for Wales since the consultation was launched.

This new fox-snaring code for Wales seeks to deliver higher animal welfare standards, increased efficiency in fox control, and ensure that fewer non-target species are caught.

A spokesman for the National Gamekeepers’ Organisation said: “We very much welcome the publication of Welsh Government’s new best practice code for fox snaring. It is crucial that all those who set fox snares in Wales obtain a copy of the new code. Please read it and abide by it. It is equally essential that all those who snare foxes use snares that comply with the new code."
