Glue
traps
 cause slow, agonizing deaths to the animals—mice, birds, squirrels, kittens,
and other small animals—who get caught in them. These animals can die of
suffocation, dehydration, or starvation while stuck to a trap, or the glue can
rip patches of skin, fur, or feathers from the animals’ bodies as they
desperately struggle to escape. Death can take days.

Glue traps are also filthy—in fact, the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cautions against their use! And glue
traps don’t even work to control rodent populations: When rodents are killed, a spike in the food supply results, prompting accelerated
breeding among survivors and newcomers and causing increased populations!

Many well-known companies and
institutions, such as JPMorgan Chase Bank, American Eagle Outfitters, and even
the New York City Police Department, have already pulled these cruel,
unsanitary, and ineffective traps. But others have not yet done so. Mice and
other animals who suffer in glue traps need your voice. Please contact the
following entities now and demand that they stop selling cruel glue traps. 

<![CDATA[]]>

Whenever you see glue traps being sold, send a
polite letter to the store manager. Ask him or her to stop selling the traps
and point out the many companies nationwide that have already sworn off or
pulled glue traps and opted for more humane methods instead.

If you find an animal who is stuck in a glue
trap, pour a small amount of cooking oil or baby oil onto the stuck areas
(avoiding the animal’s nose and mouth to prevent suffocation) and gently work
the animal free. Injured
or weak animals
 must be rushed to a nearby veterinarian or wildlife rehabilitator.

Countless businesses and institutions
have already sworn off glue traps, thanks to caring consumers like you who have
taken action. Let’s continue to raise our voices against these cruel and
inhumane traps until they are pulled from all shelves.
