Glue-In at Lowe’s

Published by PETA.

It was literally a sticky situation for employees at one Lowe’s store in Toledo, Ohio, yesterday, when a woman dressed as a mouse entered the store and “glued” herself to the floor. As the “mouse” screamed and writhed, customers surrounded her with caution signs reading, “Lowe’s Tortures Animals.”



The “mouse” was taken into police custody after half an hour of shrieking and struggling, and she was lucky. Being arrested is nothing compared to the days of starvation and dehydration that animals ensnared in glue traps suffer. The misery of glue traps is so painful that some animals even chew off their own legs in a desperate attempt to free themselves. No glue trap is humane—and there are effective alternatives. Urge Lowe’s to end the torment and stop selling glue traps immediately.
