THE HOME DEPOT PROHIBITS GLUE TRAPS IN ITS STORES 07/20/2017

During discussions between PETA and The Home Depot regarding the company’s sale of glue traps—products that cause immense suffering to small mammals and birds who tear off parts of their faces and limbs trying to escape over hours or days—a Home Depot employee found a mouse suffering in a glue trap inside one of its own stores. After witnessing firsthand how animals suffer as they struggle in the traps’ adhesive, The Home Depot decided to prohibit the use of glue traps in its more than 2,200 stores nationwide. Mice, songbirds, squirrels, and other small animals end up in glue traps, where they tear their flesh and break bones struggling to escape. Some even chew off their own limbs in an attempt to free themselves. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns against the use of glue traps because animals who are caught in them lose control of their bodily functions as they struggle to escape. It can take days for trapped animals to die from exhaustion, injury, shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss. (peta.org)
