Remove Glue Traps Set in New York Schools and Universities!

The Pine Bush Central School District in New York is reportedly using these cruel death traps, which cause immense and prolonged suffering for animals, for rodent control!

Victims of these traps (also known as "glue trays" or "glue boards") often rip themselves to pieces in their frantic struggles to escape the sticky mess. Exhausted and terrified, they die of shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss—and death can take days.

They're also dangerous to human health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as Health Canada warn against using glue traps because of disease risks caused by the pathogens in the urine and feces of stressed rodents—a risk that students and faculty face whenever schools use these cruel devices.

Please urge the Pine Bush Central School District officials to join the countless schools that have sworn off glue traps!

Glue traps are pure evil. They cause intense and prolonged agony as panicked rodents starve, suffocate in the glue, or tear themselves apart in a desperate attempt to escape. It can take more than 24 hours for some animals to die. Glue traps are also hell for humans, who have no clue what they’re getting into when they buy these gooey, filthy contraptions. Trapped rodents scream and squeal for hours, upsetting anyone within earshot. And upon finding live beings suffering in the glue, trap users often feel guilty and panic. What’s worse, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention specifically warns against the use of glue traps because trapped and terrified animals lose control of their bodily functions, posing a disease risk!
