From the eyes of a poacher, hunting wildlife by snares is cheap, easy, and nearly impossible to get caught.
They can set hundreds of traps in a day, leave for a few days, and come back to see discover their prizes. However, snares are one of the most detrimental and least sustainable forms hunting. With forest floors littered with snares, any animal can get caught and it is a slow and torturous death. As the animal struggles, the snare gets tighter and there is no escape. The abundance of snares and their indiscriminate nature has decimated wildlife in Southeast Asia.
