Today, I’ve been researching wire snares and poaching. I’ve been looking for materials to help teach children in a community next to a reserve why poaching is a problem. A common method used to catch animals is wire snares. The main problem with these is, they trap and often kill which ever animal gets caught in it. It’s a wire loop that tightens as the animal pulls on it. I’ve not enjoyed looking at the photos…
But, here I found a really cool video showing a man who was able to get a tiger cub out of a wire snare.
