      I was composing a letter to my local Walmart (Fredonia, NY) regarding their sale of glue traps and I came across this petition requesting Home Depot to stop selling them. I was surprised to see how slowly it is catching on considering the cruelty of these things.

      "Mice stuck to these traps struggle to free themselves and will pull out their own hair, exposing bare, raw areas of skin. They break or even bite off their own legs, and the glue causes their eyes to become badly irritated and scarred. After three to five hours in the glue traps, the mice defecate and urinate heavily because of their severe stress and fear, and quickly became covered with their own excrement. Animals whose faces become stuck in the glue slowly suffocate, and all trapped animals are subject to starvation and dehydration. It takes anywhere from three to five days for the mouse to finally die. This is nothing less than torture."

      Please sign this and pass it on. No animal deserves to suffer this way.
