Urge Toronto Apartment Complex to End Pigeon Trapping!

Roselawn Terrace, a residential community in Toronto, Ontario, has reportedly once again hired a contractor to deploy traps and remove pigeons who are simply trying to eke out an existence in the area. In addition to tearing wild families apart and leaving orphaned young to starve, such initiatives are traumatic for trapped animals, who experience immense panic and can succumb very quickly to exposure, stress, dehydration, or injuries sustained in frantic attempts to escape.

And as apparently evidenced by reported past trapping initiatives at this location, removing wildlife actually backfires because the resultant spike in the food supply accelerates breeding among survivors, while the inevitable newcomers arrive for the still-available resources. PETA contacted representatives of the apartment facility but to no avail. Now it’s your turn to speak up!

Please take a moment to call and send a quick note to the office manager of Roselawn Terrace, politely urging her to halt any trapping and commit to using humane deterrents instead:

I was appalled to learn that Roselawn Terrace has reportedly once again hired a contractor to trap and remove pigeons who are simply trying to eke out an existence in the area. In addition to tearing wild families apart and leaving orphaned young to starve, such initiatives are traumatic for trapped animals, who experience immense panic and can succumb very quickly to exposure, stress, dehydration, or injuries sustained in frantic attempts to escape. Furthermore, as evidenced by reported similar past trapping efforts at this location, removing wildlife actually backfires because the resultant spike in the food supply accelerates breeding among survivors, while the inevitable newcomers arrive for the still-available resources, and the population then increases. Please ditch the cruel and futile trapping initiative and commit to using tried-and-true humane wildlife deterrents!

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
