Do you use traps?

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Farming -

There have been con­cerns about the use of some traps and other de­vices for a long time. Most are used by hunters or those work­ing in pest man­age­ment.

The sale and use of leg-hold (gin) traps and glue­board traps for trap­ping an­i­mals is re­stricted in New Zealand un­der the An­i­mal Wel­fare Act 1999.

The Act also re­quires cap­ture traps to be checked daily. There are also re­quire­ments on the treat­ment and killing of trapped an­i­mals. Read more about the use of traps: www.mpi.govt.nz/pro­tec­tion-and-re­sponse/an­i­mal-wel­fare/trap­sand-de­vices/
