It is still legal to use snares for vermin, although nowadays they are viewed more as a method of holding rabbits,for example, rather than a way of killing them.

The newer snares have a stop device on them which helps to prevent accidental tethering by the leg,of deer , foxes etc. However discretion should always be used when setting them.

Rabbit snares are perfectly legal and used/made by many people.

Depends on the situation really.Have used them in the past where I couldn't ferret or get close enough to shoot,but having to check them on a daily basis can be a bind,especially when the days are shorter.

They're only a last resort tool for me.

Avoid placing them anywhere the public(and their dogs) may venture to spare yourself hassle.
