SnareWatch is an information-sharing and reporting facility about snaring in the UK.

Found a snare?

If there is a live animal in the snare call the relevant animal welfare charity. We do not advise trying to release an animal yourself as the animal could be injured and require medical attention.

Help OneKind end the cruel practice of snaring by donating now.

We believe snares should be banned in the UK. We’ve started SnareWatch to gather information on where and by who snaring is used and we will use this evidence to campaign to end snaring.

Snares can harm animals – whether the target species, other wildlife or a beloved family pet – and we need your help to end the welfare problems caused by these traps. 

Please report any snaring incidents here and sign up to donate to OneKind’s work to secure a safe future for animals, free from snaring.

Support us now by donating direct via PayPal, or commit to making a regular donation to OneKind to help build our vision of a world without cruelty, abuse and mistreatment of animals.
