Are there any restrictions on snaring in the UK. I have also seen a snare which you place on a log that is resting on a tree and an angle, which is meant to catch squirrels, but is there anyway of stopping red squirrels from getting caught in the snare ?

In areas where there's a chance of red squirrels being about you use catch alive traps so you could release them and humanly dispatch the greys its common sense really

if in doubt why not try a live trap first however you will be legally bound to kill the grey squirrell as it is a criminal offence to release it
