    Help ban the cruel use of glue traps in Scotland to stop animals suffering slow and painful deaths.

    We are petitioning the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to totally ban the sale and use of glue traps and boards in Scotland. 

    Absolutely disgusting. What else can I say. The mentality of the people thinking up these cruel traps is beyond me.
