I am asking that everyone who reads this if you could please pass this to anyone you know. If you work in a building, chances are that building mgmt. uses an exterminator for pest control. Many of these companies use glue traps to rid the buildings of mice and insects.
I have seen first hand the inhumane and cruel results of a glue trap. I found a mouse that was still alive but whose left side was glued to the board. He was bleeding at the mouth and I knew he would die shortly. I tried to remove him but couldn't. I was in tears knowing the pain that he suffered because of this horrendous trap.
Please, if you believe that no animal should be treated inhumanely, I ask that you look throughout your individual buildings for glue traps and remove them. They can be found in metal containers or just laid out on a floor usually near food places.
Don't let another innocent animal suffer this horrendous death. Remove them for the sake of the animals. Thank you most sincerely.
Marie

There was a restaurant owner in Ethiopia who had two 3 month old Cheetah cubs that he was using for "entertainment" by having his 3 and 4 year old children drag them around by their tails, poking and hitting them, and prodding them to fight one another. 2 U.S. soldiers saw this and are trying to secure their release to an animal reservation. One of the cheetah clubs is blind because someone kicked it in its face.
The photo from this story is the most heartbreaking you will ever see. This is the kind of story that convinces me of the inate evil in some humans. To call a person an animal who treats another human badly is a misnomer and an injustice to animals because only humans could treat fellow innocent creatures like this.
It is a credit to our American troops that they had the humanity and compassion to try and rescue these poor cubs from a certain death.
If you wish to learn more on this gut wrenching story, please go the the Cheetah Conservation Funds site at www.cheetah.org
