After PETA explained to Rossy that small animals caught in glue traps often struggle for hours or days before finally dying from shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or being crushed to death under piles of garbage, the company confirmed that it won’t sell these cruel devices again! The discount chain, which has nearly 80 locations throughout eastern Canada, promptly removed the traps from store shelves. Despite knowing of the agonizing suffering that glue traps cause, Albertsons Companies continues to sell these cruel, indiscriminate devices. Please urge the grocery chain to follow the example of Rossy and hundreds of other companies that have stopped selling or using glue traps.
