The apartment building at 253 W. 15th St. in New York City is reportedly using glue
traps for rodent control! PETA implored Page Apartments, the management company responsible for the building in question, to consider methods that are less cruel, don’t pose health risks, and are more cost-effective, but our pleas have gone unanswered. Your voice is needed!
Glue traps are some of the most vile products on the market, causing immense and prolonged suffering. Victims often rip themselves to pieces
in their frantic struggles to escape the sticky mess. Exhausted and terrified, they
succumb to shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss—and death can take
days. Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well
as Health Canada warn against using glue traps because of disease risks posed by the many pathogens in the waste of stressed rodents.
Please urge Page Apartments to join the countless entities that have
sworn off glue traps. And please, forward this alert widely!
