Tulsa Public Schools is using glue traps to kill rodents in its K-12 schools. PETA informed district officials of the extreme cruelty of these traps, but our concerns have apparently fallen on deaf ears.

Glue traps are some of the cruelest products on the market, causing immense and prolonged suffering. Panicked rodents often rip themselves to pieces in their frantic struggle to escape the sticky mess. Exhausted and terrified, they die from shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss. Death can take more than 24 hours. Also, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers glue traps to be a disease risk because ensnared animals defecate and urinate out of stress and fright.

Please contact Tulsa Public Schools today! Politely ask district officials to remove all glue traps immediately and to join the many academic institutions that have sworn off the cruel devices for good.
