Snare training go ahead

There has been confusion in Government recently about the Snares Training (Scotland) Order 2012 leading to uncertainty about the validity of training courses being offered by SGA, GWCT and BASC. This was clarified in a letter from Scottish Government.  The clear message to all snare operators is "From 1st January 2013, snaring operators will have to successfully complete an approved snaring training course and obtain an identification number from their local police force which they will then have to display on each snare that they set."  All snare operators who have not done a certificated training course since 1st May 2010 are urged to contact SGA, BASC or GWCT as soon as possible - all three have a programme of courses.  To view letter from Scottish Govermemt please click on the attachment below.
