Ban the sale and use of adhesive rodent traps
Petition Created On: 19 Apr, 2009
Petition Created By: Brian Ellis
We the undersigned petition the Cyprus Parliament and Government to introduce legislation to ban the sale and use of adhesive boards to trap rats and mice. These rodent traps are unspeakably cruel and cause unnecessary suffering by glueing the animals to the board. In some cases, the animals have gnawed off their own legs in an attempt, usually unsuccessful, to free themselves. It often requires three days of agony and distress before it dies of dehydration, sometimes in their own excrement and urine. As wads of fur are pulled out in their struggles, the bare skin in contact with their body fluids is badly irritated. Even though effective, these adhesive traps are unnecessary because reusable mechanical traps are also cheaper, effective and usually kill the animal instantaneously, as are quick-acting poisons. These adhesive traps are as barbaric as the banned limesticks used to trap blackcaps (ambelopoulia) and legislation to ban them would mark Cyprus amongst the leaders with respect to protection against animal cruelty.
