Glue traps—small boards coated with an extremely sticky adhesive—are among the cruelest pest-control devices on the market today. Animals who get stuck to them suffer for days before they finally die of starvation, dehydration, self-mutilation, and shock. Many animals—especially mothers desperate to return to their young—rip patches of skin, fur, or feathers off their bodies. Some even try to chew off their limbs as they frantically struggle to escape.
Many major companies—like CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Safeway—have stopped selling glue traps because of the suffering that they cause. Sadly, other corporations insist on stocking glue traps despite repeated letters and phone calls from PETA staff trying to convince them otherwise. Now we need your help! Please take just a few moments to fill out the form below to send an automated letter to the top executive of Target. Please also contact Do It Best by calling them at 260-748-5300 or faxing them at 260-748-5620. These two major companies refuse to stop selling cruel glue traps.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am very concerned that you continue selling glue traps despite how cruel they are. Please follow the lead of Rite Aid, Safeway, Albertsons, CVS, and other companies that have made the compassionate decision to stop selling these hideous devices. I will not shop at your stores until you stop selling cruel glue traps - and I will urge everyone I know to do the same. I hope to hear from PETA that you have made the right decision. Thank you.
