Leg Hold Traps

Animals in the Wild

SPCA supports trapping methods that minimise the negative welfare harms caused to targeted and non-targeted animals during hunting.

SPCA opposes the manufacture, importation, sale, and use of all leg hold traps due to the negative impacts to animal welfare they cause and the indiscriminate nature of the way in which they catch animals.
