PETA informed Raytheon Missile Systems about the disease risks and extreme cruelty inherent in glue traps, but the company is apparently sticking with them. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns against glue trap usage because of the disease risks posed by the many pathogens in the waste of ensnared rodents, who eliminate out of stress and fright. This should be a concern for any business. Glue traps are some of the cruelest products on the market, causing immense and prolonged suffering. Panicked rodents often rip themselves to pieces in their frantic struggle to escape the sticky mess. Exhausted and terrified, they die from shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss. Death can take more than 24 hours.Please urge Raytheon Missile Systems officials to join the countless businesses that have sworn off glue traps! Please send polite comments to:Taylor W.
