Glue traps are responsible for more suffering than virtually any other wildlife control product on the market. Glue traps are inhumane. Most animals caught in glue traps suffer slow and agonizing deaths. They literally rip off the bottom of the rodents

When I could not find a live trap, I heard when the mouse stepped onto the glue trap I had to buy. I poured oil on the feet ad set her free in the outdoors. However, the oil also ended up coating her. Now I see that some mice may thrash and exhaust themselves, lay down and become even more stuck. Horrible! We need to realize that we have no right to cause suffering to any being while we are here.

That photo is awful. I lost two cats to rat poison a few years ago. They both had caught a mouse that had ingested the poison, and the results were two dead cats. I was devastated. If you're going to do in a rat or a mouse or even a roach, do iit quick and don't do it with poison. Save that for Republicans.

I signed, but I do not approve of poisons as alternatives to glue traps- the poisons on the market can cause an animal to bleed to death, go into kidney failure, or get brain swelling and die of convulsions- not a better way to die than a glue trap.

thank you for signing:
Ban Glue Traps in New York City Parks

Agreed Christine.

Which is worse though, death by glue traps or bleeding to death by poisons? I wish none of them had to die.

Many years ago, I had a rodent "problem" in my garage. They were chewing up camping gear, clothing, bedding etc. and making nests and pooping and peeing...a lot of damage. BEFORE I knew what those poisons did to an animal, I put one in the garage. - Then one day I found a beautiful treasured squirrel laying outside of my garage, bleeding from its ears.

That day I decided they could ruin whatever they chose. It still makes me sad to remember it. :-(
