Concerned residents of Kentucky Circle Village, a senior living community in
Denver, alerted PETA upon hearing that management was trapping local squirrels
and relocating them five or more miles away—and “with PETA’s approval.”
Nothing could be further from the truth! Squirrels transplanted beyond a one-mile radius (of where they’re
trapped) have trouble finding adequate sustenance and often fall victim to
predators, foreign disease and parasites, and territorial maulings by other
squirrels. These initiatives also leave unweaned babies to starve when mothers
are removed. We expressed our concerns to the community’s executive director, only to
be informed that trapping is underway and several squirrels have already been
dumped more than 10 miles away! Despite offering our assistance with effective, humane squirrel-control
methods, we were hung up on. Now your voice is needed!

Please politely urge Kentucky Circle Village to halt cruel squirrel
trapping before more animals suffer—and then forward this message widely!
