They're trying to catch animals.

The politicians are too experienced with the manufacturing of traps.

Dear Madam,

I am writing with regards to ''Architect of the Capitol'' use of glue traps within U.S. government offices. I'd like to encourage your agency to use more humane methods for rodent control. The current method causes prolonged death, exhaustion stress, & disease risks to humans. Please consider using methods that were less cruel.
