    Who else is going to set a fox trap? 99% of vermin is killed by landowners and gamekeepers. No one else would have a reason too. Plus if its on private property, its the landowners responsibility.

    I would hope that its being investigated. but most likely as there will be no evidence or proof, nothing will be done.

    The only fox trap's in use round here are used by british rail:rolleyes:. most land owner's and gamekeeper's shoot them. glad the dog was ok though, I thought trap's had to be checked every 12 hour's not 24:confused:

    Where i grew up they shot, trapped, and snared them. Depends on how much land, and the individuals involved.

    The law states traps and snares have to be checked once every 24 hours. Both should be banned imo.

    British Rail use traps as they relocate the animals.

    The chap round here who work's for br relocate's them to rainbow bridge. The shoot's round here have rough shoot's so there would be no point trapping the fox, Bacs recermend trap's should be checked at least twice aday. Have to say poacher's have been known to use them to catch Badger's!

    I have a feeling most "relocated" animals are relocated to a hole in the ground.

    Every 12 hours is great. Sadly whoever set this trap was and still is, a cruel moron.

    Dont get me started on badger baiting :mad:

    Nonnie they baite me all the time on here:D. Don't thing any trap's should be used. even 12hr's is too long to leave an animal to suffer! Never have and never will use a trap.

    My old cat used to get stuck in one constantly. We had to get the gamekeeper to stop using them (plus he didnt check them often). Then he used to trap magpies, crows and other corvids, and because he used to use a live bird to encourage the others into the trap, my cat used to get in there aswell.
