The Truth About Snares | Trapped In the Past Part One

January 24, 2024

In partnership with The Fur-Bearers, the EXPOSED Wildlife Conservancy is pleased to present Part One of the Trapped in the Past documentary series, The Truth About Snares.

Part One focuses on killing neck snares, diving deep into the science and the ethics behind this cruel and archaic trapping device that is still used in Canada and much of the U.S. despite being banned in more than 85 countries worldwide. This episode also unravels commercial trapping regulations and answers the questions: who is trapping and why?Trapped in the Past exposes Canada's cruel, archaic, unethical and unnecessary commercial trapping industry with current science, hard-hitting research and dynamic interviews with some of the world's leading experts on trapping, including trappers and wildlife biologists such as Gilbert Proulx and Carter Niemeyer.

Our goal with the Trapped In the Past series is to equip you with the information you need to speak out on behalf of Canada's fur-bearers like wolves, beavers, lynx and foxes to enable a comprehensive trapping reform that includes a ban on snares across the country. Please help us get the word out by sharing this, commenting below, and liking it (even if you DON'T like what you learn in the video!).
