Take part in removing traps that drown!

In the context of the ongoing hunting reform, the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition finally takes animals into account. A consultation is underway for a draft decree for the removal of traps that drown. Join with us to participate in the abolition of these traps, this decree must be validated!

Finally, a draft decree that we support wholeheartedly! It will allow for traps that drown animals that are classified as pests "likely to cause damage" to be banned. In other words, mainly the nutria and muskrats, but they can still trap other animals, including our companions such as mink for example. Death by drowning, it’s hard to anything worse. 

Four and a half years ago, the National Council of Hunting gave an unfavourable opinion towards the suppression of this type of trap, but since then, civil society has changed and no longer wants this. Our systematic opposition to all situations that cause suffering to animals is supported by more and more citizens. The barbarism of humans is no longer accepted. The Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition finally seems to take this into account, at least for this particular subject and bypassing the opinion of hunters. This is one of the demands we made in our petition supported by more than 166,000 people, for a radical reform of hunting: the ban on traps that kill.

Admittedly, this is only a first step. If this project is adopted, only this method will disappear, not the trapping of nutria and muskrats ... But this small advance allows to move towards a more emphatic society. We will have already taken the first step forward if this is well and truly published. Let's take part in this public consultation!
