Make glue traps illegal within the UK

Petition Details

Make it illegal for both glue traps to be sold and used within the UK to stop the suffering of animals.

Additional Information

Glue traps are used commonly to capture wildlife and unwanted pests. Glue traps are extremely inhumane and it’s not just vermin that get caught on these traps. Animals can suffer for days whilst stuck to this trap leading to starvation and dehydration and some animals even chew their own limbs off to escape. This is a painful and torturous way to capture and get rid of animals and many animals suffer unnecessarily.
