After A Complaint, The NYPD Is Using Better Mousetraps

| Filed under: PETAMouse

mouse trap

We are sure the NYPD has a lot of more important issues to be dealing with, than what type of mousetraps they use, but this is really great that they changed things up!

The NYPD had been using glue traps to catch mice around their headquarters at One Police Plaza. However, these traps cause the mice to get stuck on them and they can live there, miserable for about 24 hours!

In October, PETA recieved a complaint about these traps. They then conveyed their concerns to Police Commissioner Kelly.

The department responded to this, and they replaced the glue traps with two types of professional-grade traps PETA recommended, created to kill mice instantly.

To thank the NYPD, PETA awarded the department and Kelly the Compassion Award, for the decision "to stop using cruel glue traps."

What do U think about the NYPD changing the kind of mousetraps they use?
