Victory! JPMorgan Chase Ditches Glue Traps

JP Morgan Chase

A whistleblower recently reported that a Washington Mutual (WaMu) branch in the Chicago area was using glue traps to catch mice.

We contacted James Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase—which recently acquired WaMu—and explained that animals entangled in glue traps often suffer from torn flesh and even broken bones resulting from their panicked efforts to escape. JPMorgan Chase’s vice president promptly announced that the company has ditched glue traps permanently and will be opting for more humane methods of resolving conflicts with mice and rats (we recommend these). Yay!

As a leading company, we hope that JPMorgan Chase will inspire other companies (ahem, Lowe’s) to ditch glue traps too.

Feel free to post a comment below thanking JPMorgan Chase for sticking up for mice.

    Thank you JPMorgan Chase for your positive response to Peta. Peta are your mouse traps designed to catch rats too? I have a few house guests who would be more than welcome to take refuge if they didn’t worry me about chewing my electrical wiring and insulation.

    Love to read your comments Brien!! If everyone thought the same this world would be a better place for us all!! Just had to say.

    It’s great to see such a large company defending animal rights. Looks like another big win for PETA and animal rights.

    Glue traps are sadistically inhumane and the inventor of them must have had his share of inner demons. St. Martin De Porres the patron saint of social justice loved mice.
