Wildlife and pets are at risk from cruel glue traps

New campaign: Please ask retailers to stop selling glue traps that are cruel and harmful to wildlife and pets (see photos below)

The Vancouver Humane Society has been campaigning to urge retailers Rona, The Home Depot, Canadian Tire and Walmart Canada to stop selling cruel glue traps used for household rodent control.  

As photos (see below) from the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC and the BC SPCA show, glue traps are harmful to wildlife and pets, as well as being cruel for their intended victims. 

Please ask these stores to stop selling glue traps
