Fur trade: 'Fox trapping has got to be done'

A man who claims to be the last fur-trapper in the UK has said he should be able to carry on without fear of being prosecuted.

David Sneade, from south Wales, said he was acting legally and supplying a demand for fox fur in Europe and beyond.

But animal rights activists said he was causing unnecessary suffering to foxes. They want a law banning the practice.

Snaring foxes is legal and a method of pest control with strict guidelines.
