Snare Hunt & Litter Pick October 2014
It was wonderful to see such support for this event and Thank You to all that participated,
committee, community and honorary offices.
We met at the gazebo and split into 2 groups, one for snare hunt and one for litter picking. The
Litter picking group targeted a property on Bond Street and reports received indicate that 15 bags of rubbish was
The snare hunt group also litter picked on route and found information that will lead to possible
legal action against one dumper.
The weather was not ideal and the cooler, damper conditions were welcomed and did not deter people
from participating in this event.
A bushpig bolted past Cee-Jay and Ali in the thick bush. The dense vegetation made access difficult.
The area from Scary Cliffs, next the Mdloti river to the N2 was infested with alien vegetation:
Water hyacinth, a forest of Litsea, lantana, pepper trees, bug weed and triffid weed
The first snare count was 7 found and removed, when the second group returned the final snare count
was 11 in total. All snares found were made with cable wire.
Thank you to everyone who gave 3 hours of their time to conservation on Saturday morning
