WCS Now Distributes and Sells Pair of UK Trapping Devices

International News

The Collarum and the Tube Trap have been approved by the British Parliament.

| November 30, 2009

EAST GRANBY, Conn. — Wildlife Control Supplies announced that they have gained approval for the distribution and sale of two trapping devices in the U.K.

Effective Oct. 1, 2009, the Collarum and the Tube Trap have been approved by the British Parliament. Effective Oct. 1, 2009, both of these devices have been added to the Spring Traps Act, which is a requirement of all traps prior to offering them for sale in the U.K..

For 2-plus years WCS has been working with the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and their U.K. distributor, the Magnum Trap Co., during which the traps were put through a rigorous testing regimen to ensure satisfactory performance for humaneness and selectivity. The approved Tube Trap, which is lethal, is now legal for sale and use for squirrel and mink. The Collarum, which is a species-specific, live capture device for canines, is solely being used to control nuisance fox.

WCS plans on seeking approval for the distribution and sale of these devices in Ireland and Scotland, in the near future. For more information regarding these devices visit www.wildlifecontrolsupplies.com.
