There are a many different types of snare set in the bush, ranging from thick cable snares set for catching Buffalo, to smaller wire snares set for antelope. The wide variety of snare types meant we the dogs had to learn them all.
As well as the myriad metal snares set for mammals, we also found many different types of snares set for birds of different sizes. It is a really tough situation when this sort of poaching previously would have been subsistence poaching and at a sustainable level. With the swelling human population and the need for protein, more and more snares are being put out and it becomes more concerning that the bird populations can sustain the off-take. What is the effect of this on their natural predators?
