If you have any concerns about the use of snares, anywhere in the UK, you can share them with us on the SnareWatch website.

You can tell us if your pet was caught in a snare, report findings of animals trapped in snares, raise concerns about possible illegal misuse of snares or simply let us know if you’re worried about snares you have seen in a particular area.

A snare was found in woodland in Perthshire.

The snare, which was unset, was found near a stink pit which had the remains of a deer and the bones of other animals.
