Snaring Motion in Scottish Parliament

Irene Oldfather MSP yesterday tabled the following motion in the Scottish Parliament.

Northern Ireland Committee Votes to Ban Snares: That the Parliament congratulates the Northern Ireland Assembly’s Environment Committee for taking decisive action to end the suffering to animals caused by snares; welcomes that the Committee has voted to ban snares under the new Wildlife and Natural Environment Bill, and in doing so has taken a policy decision based on the clear evidence that snares cause suffering, and the overwhelming public support for an end to the use of these cruel, indiscriminate traps; therefore congratulates the League Against Cruel Sports for its efforts in raising awareness of the issue and presenting evidence of the cruelty of snaring to support this decision.

The Parliament is currently in recess and so other MSPs can’t sign the motion until they return next week. But, if you live in Scotland, that doesn’t stop you writing to your MSP now to ask them to sign it when they get back!
