CAUSE HORRENDOUS, MASSIVE ANIMAL SUFFERING
I received a phone call from an upset woman who found a mouse stuck in a glue trap. The owners of the property who had set out the traps allowed her to remove the trap, and she called me for help. I immediately drove to meet her, to see what I could do to help the mouse. She handed me the glue trap, with the small, frail mouse's tiny feet and his bony body hopelessly stuck to the ghastly contraption. Some of his foot had been torn off (from struggling to free himself from the glue) One entire side of his face was stuck to the glue board. He was having difficulty breathing. It appeared that this poor mouse had been lingering in agony, stuck to this trap for days and was dehydrated, perhaps dying. The mouse was suffering greatly and had to be humanely euthanized.
PLEASE, when you see glue traps set out render them useless. Educate the people who unwittingly use them about the intense suffering and cruel, lingering deaths glue traps cause. Write to companies that produce and sell these horrid glue traps of animal cruelty, and let them know you do not support animal suffering and will never purchase their products.
Help end glue trap animal cruelty by writing to the companies listed below.
Thank you for caring about the animals,
