A snare is a wire noose set to trap any animal or bird which crosses its path.

For the poacher, snaring presents low risk for high return. These rudimentary traps can be made cheaply and easily from readily available items such as wire, cable or rope. 

Snares are primarily set to catch wildlife for food. This food, known as 'bushmeat' is widely sold in markets across Africa & Asia. Although the target species for bushmeat poachers are usually antelope, wild pig and porcupine,  snaring is indiscriminate. It kills or injures a wide range of species including endangered species such as wild dogs, giraffe, elephant and lion in Africa, and tigers, bears and dholes in Asia.

Snaring kills tens of thousands of animals every year. It is one of the greatest threats to wildlife alongside habitat loss, hunting and human-wildlife conflict.
