We the undersigned petition Mole Valley District Council to Ban all inhumane animal traps. More details

More details from petition creator

My 1 year old cat was suspected to have caught her tail in a trap of some kind which has resulted in her having a £600 operation to remove a couple of inches off her tail. Banning traps designed to kill animals or damage them is the only way forward to stop incidents like this happening.

Petition Rejected

This petition has been rejected because:

  • It was outside the remit or powers of the council

Additional information about this rejection:
The relevant departments within Mole Valley District Council have been approached and they have confirmed that they do not, and have never used inhumane animal traps. It was suggested that the best way forward would be to contact your local MP to request a change in national legislation as the banning of inhumane animal traps fall outside of Mole Valley District Council's Jurisdiction.
