Los Angeles World Airports, which owns and operates LAX and Van Nuys airports, has banned and removed glue traps! This move comes after PETA told it that the traps cause small animals stuck in the adhesive to suffer, sometimes for days, before finally dying from dehydration, starvation, or asphyxiation. Anyone thinking of buying a glue trap should first watch this video, which shows how animals stuck to these devices struggle as they slowly die. Please take a minute to urge other airports to stop using them.
