At the heart of the hearing is the draft Directive to convert into EU law the Agreement on International Humane Trapping Standards (AIHTS), signed in 1998 between the European Union, Canada; Russia and the US.
Roger Helmer (EPP-ED, UK) on the other hand feels that the proposal is "a step in the right direction" to making the use of traps more humane for the animals, citing Canada as an example, where AIHTS is in force and has led to a ban on almost all outdated traps.
Speaking on behalf of the Federation of Hunters Associations of the European Union (FACE), Stewart Scull added his support for the introduction of international trapping without cruelty standards, based on the AIHTS framework.
