Letter: Leg trap evidence

Sir: Richard D North ("Very sexy. Big mistake", 5 December) stresses how harmless leg traps are to their victims and that he knows of no one who has seen an animal which has chewed its leg off when trapped.

I know of people in the pro-hunting lobby in this country who have seen foxes and rats, caught in illegal traps, which have chewed their trapped legs off.
