Your attitude towards the regulation of trapping in the EU

Post  lethale on Sun Jan 25, 2009 8:23 am

Following concerns expressed by some interest groups about trapping methods used in the EU and in some third countries, the EU passed the Council Regulation (EEC) No 3254/91. This Regulation, popularly known as the Leg hold Traps Regulation, prohibits both the use of leg hold traps in the Community and the introduction into the Community of pelts and manufactured goods of certain wild animal species originating in countries which catch these animals by means of leg hold traps or trapping methods that do not meet international humane trapping standards. A leg hold trap is defined in its Article 1 as a device designed to restrain or capture an animal by means of jaws which close tightly upon one or more of the animal's limbs, thereby preventing withdrawal of the limb or limbs from the trap.

In this context the Commission would also like to consult the European public in relation to trapping, and the need for further harmonised rules such as the introduction of trapping standards.

This consultation is based on an online questionnaire containing 28 mainly closed questions. It should then take you app. 15 minutes to fill in all the questions.

The results of the consultation will be summarised in the final report of the above mentioned study in 2009.
