We at the Houston Humane Society Wildlife Center see many glue trap victims each year. Young squirrels, screech owls, and opossums, as well as bats, snakes, lizards, and songbirds can all fall victim to these horrible traps. Animals trapped in the glue experience panic and struggle, leading to further ensnarement. The suffering is heart-wrenching as the glue tears off patches of fur, feathers, scales, or skin. Some animals even resort to chewing off their own limbs in a desperate attempt to escape. Glue traps are inhumane, resulting in animals suffocating, starving, or dying from blood loss.
Please contact your United States Representative and urge them to cosponsor the Glue Trap Prohibition Act (HR7018). You can locate your representative using the link provided.
Please share this post and tell your friends and family about the legislation.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of wildlife and prevent their suffering.
