Used to deter or catch poachers, this could cause serious injury such as a broken leg. The use of spring-guns and man-traps was forbidden by an act of parliament in 1826. In 1830 Lord Melbourne proposed that the act be repealed so people could apply for a license to protect their property by these means. Although passed in the House of Lords, nobody saw fit to put this abhorrent law into practice.
