¡Victoria! Gap Inc. se Une a Cientos de Marcas en la Prohibición de Trampas de Pegamento

Las trampas de pegamento pueden provocar muertes lentas y agonizantes en los animales (como ratones, ardillas y aves, entre otros) que quedan atrapados en ellas. Pueden morir asfixiados, deshidratados, o de hambre, mientras permanecen pegados en la trampa, o pueden arrancarse trozos de piel, pelaje, o plumas del cuerpo, mientras luchan desesperados por escapar del pegamento. La muerte puede tardar días en llegar.

Las trampas de pegamento también plantean un riesgo para la salud humana. Los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades de EE.UU. desaconsejan su uso porque los animales que quedan atrapados en ellas siguen produciendo orina y heces, las cuales pueden causar enfermedades.

Las trampas de pegamento ni siquiera funcionan para controlar la población de roedores: cuando los roedores son matados, ¡los sobrevivientes y recién llegados se reproducen más rápidamente, aumentando su número! Y fracasan en el abordaje del problema: si no se tapan los agujeros y no se eliminan los atrayentes, más animales irán a tomar el lugar de aquellos que han sido asesinados.

Muchas compañías e instituciones reconocidas (como JPMorgan Chase & Co., American Eagle Outfitters, más de 100 aeropuertos de todo el país, e incluso el Departamento de Policía de la ciudad de Nueva York) ya han dejado de usar las viles, insalubres e ineficaces trampas y enormes corporaciones como Rite Aid, Dollar General, y Walgreens han dejado de venderlas. Pero otras compañías aún no lo han hecho.

Si en algún momento ves que se están usando trampas de pegamento para capturar y matar animales, contacta a los responsables, pídeles que quiten todas las trampas de inmediato y se comprometan a no volver a usarlas, y luego contacta a PETA. Si hay un animal atrapado en una trampa de pegamento, vierte una pequeña cantidad de aceite de cocina o de bebés en las partes pegadas del cuerpo animal (evitando la nariz y boca del animal para evitar su asfixia) y libéralo suavemente. Los animales lastimados o debilitados deben ser llevados de urgencia a un veterinario cercano o rehabilitador de fauna silvestre.

Cuando veas trampas de pegamento en venta, envía una carta respetuosa al gerente de la tienda. Pídele que dejen de vender las trampas y coméntale sobre las compañías y entidades que ya han dejado de usarlas o que las han retirado y optado por métodos menos crueles en su lugar.
