Gap Inc. Removes Glue Traps, Bans Their Use

After working with PETA, Gap Inc.—which is the largest specialty retailer in the U.S. and owns Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Athleta, Intermix, and Janie and Jack—removed glue traps and banned their use! Countless small animals—including mice, rats, squirrels, and birds—get stuck on glue traps every year, and they struggle desperately to escape. Many even resort to chewing off their own limbs. Gap Inc.’s compassionate decision will undoubtedly prevent a tremendous amount of suffering. Although hundreds of retailers and other entities have banned glue traps, some companies continue to sell these vile devices. Please take a moment to urge them to stop.
