Duke of Norfolk

The Duke of Norfolk is one of England’s largest landowners. His ancestral seat is Arundel Castle, Sussex where he heavily snares on the Norfolk Estate farms to prevent predation of wild game birds. He also has a home and shooting estate at Carlton Towers, Yorkshire – also littered with snares.
