The New York City Parks and Recreation Department is using glue traps to kill rodents! We immediately alerted park officials to the extreme cruelty of these traps, but officials are apparently refusing to remove the traps. Instead, they intend to engage in a killing cycle that will be endless.
Glue traps are some of the cruelest products on the market, causing immense and prolonged suffering. Panicked rodents often rip themselves to pieces in their frantic struggle to escape the sticky mess. Exhausted and terrified, they die from shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss. Death can take more than 24 hours. Also, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers glue traps to be a disease risk because ensnared animals defecate and urinate out of stress and fright.
Please politely urge New York City parks and recreation officials to remove the glue traps and stick with less cruel forms of rodent control.
