Shoppers Urged to Boycott Lowe's Until It Joins Chains That Won't Stock the Cruel Devices
For Immediate Release:May 27, 2010

Charlotte, N.C. -- Holding signs that read, "Lowe'st of the Low--Torture for Sale," PETA members--including one writhing and screaming on the ground in a sexy mouse costume--will gather outside Lowe's and urge shoppers not to buy sticky glue traps.
When: Thursday, May 27, 12 noon
Where: Outside Lowe's entrance, Iverson Way and South Boulevard, Charlotte
Glue traps are pieces of plastic or cardboard coated with a strong adhesive that catches and holds any small animal who is unlucky enough to step or fall onto one. Trapped animals struggle to escape--often ripping flesh, fur, and feathers off their own bodies in the process--and some even chew off their own limbs in an effort to free themselves. Many animals suffer for days before dying of starvation or dehydration.
"We hope that Lowe's will do the right thing by joining Albertsons, CVS, Rite Aid, and Safeway--all of which have pledged to keep sticky glue traps off their shelves," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Customers who want to make a difference can support businesses that make compassionate choices."
PETA asks consumers to opt for humane methods of keeping unwanted guests out of their homes by plugging holes and cracks through which animals can enter rooms, by maintaining a clean and sanitary home, and by using humane catch-and-release traps.
