South Downs National Park snaring cruelty Duke of Norfolk

For the first time, we have captured a dog and a hare as they are caught in snares. Deer, badgers are also victims of indiscriminate snaring. 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.
