Tulsa Public Schools is using glue traps to kill rodents in its K-12 schools. PETA informed district officials of the extreme cruelty of these traps, but our concerns have apparently fallen on deaf ears

Please contact Tulsa Public Schools today! Politely ask district officials to remove all glue traps immediately and to join the many academic institutions that have sworn off the cruel devices for good.

There are better ways and more humane ways to handle rodents. Glue traps are cruel

Thanks for posting Cher. Schools are supposed to educate and are sending a very bad message if they use glue traps. Enforcing and promoting the abuse and cruelty towards animals is not acceptable as children should be encouraged to have care and compassion for all animals.

My limited experience with mice has been with humane trapping and release into a haystack or other area in the wild. One trap was just a box with one-way door, but, I haven't seen those in years. The other was the glue trap! I simply put a bit of oil down on the feet after the little guy or girl was stuck there, and before setting her free outdoors in the cold cold grasses near an old mission school. (I tried put less oil in than actually poured out, so I always have worried about that mouse). So, people are SUPPOSED To loosen the mice from the glue and set them free with a bit of oil! If they are not doing this, there are great testimonials on those gadgets that emit sound waves to keep the mice away. I hear that these work very very well!

Messages sent, thanks for sharing. I don't understand why these traps have not been outlawed yet.
