The Prince of Wales, a lifelong environmentalist, has been urged to act and remove the “cruel” traps from the royal estate The Foundation for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said Charlies should act quickly to “further.” Prevent deaths “

It came after Nell, a dog, was caught in one of the traps before it was freed by its owner just in time

PETA said, “Noose are a wire loop that contracts when the captured animal fights. They are unnecessary, dangerous and cruel

“In their desperate attempts to escape, animals can be strangled or suffer terrible and sometimes life-threatening injuries that can become infected

“Their distress is so extreme that animals are known to chew off their limbs and desperately seek a chance at freedom

“Snares are also indiscriminate and mutilate any animal unlucky enough to approach them – as Nell’s case shows”

They added, “By banning these devices on Sandringham Estate, you would not only prevent further deaths and suffering, but you would also set a positive example of peaceful coexistence with wildlife and other animals

“We hope to hear from you soon that these unnecessary, cruel and dangerous devices are being permanently removed from Sandringham Estate”

It comes after a Nell almost lost his life on the estate, parts of which are open to the public

The dog’s owner told the Independent, “It was heartbreaking to hear your dog bark in distress and then to find he was caught in a wire noose around his neck”

The owner, who was not named, managed to rescue her beloved pet, but experts warned the dog could have died if it had not been found

This includes a protected species of owl that according to the paper was killed after being caught in one of the traps

A royal family spokesman said after the incident: “We would appreciate the opportunity to speak to the dog owner to understand where and how this happened as our policy is that traps are a good distance from all public rights of way

“As an operating area, Sandringham uses traps to protect wildlife, crops and livestock and complies with all required standards and regulations” All traps are subject to daily checks by estate personnel “

The Prince of Wales has long been an environmental advocate and last month launched a new initiative to mark half a century of campaigning
