A tiger trapped in a wire snare…

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.

 

Enjoy!
