Reps. Ted Lieu and Adam Schiff want to ban rodent glue traps

Breaking News

Democratic Reps. Ted Lieu and Adam Schiff of California are pushing a bill to ban the sale and use of glue traps to catch rodents.

“Glue traps are ruthless, inhumane, and can be dangerous to the health of humans and their pets,” Lieu said, according to a press release. “There are numerous other ways to trap small animals that don’t prolong their suffering. As a proud member of the Animal Protection Caucus, I’m pleased to introduce this bill to stop the needless suffering of these animals.”

The press release indicates that Schiff is an original cosponsor. He is currently running for U.S. Senate.

People responded to a post about the proposal on social media.

“Democrats won’t secure the border or stop the human trafficking of the Mexican drug cartels, but they will propose laws to protect literal rats,” Sean Davis tweeted.

“It’s very comforting to know that our politicians are focused on protecting the well being and dignity of rats,” Matt Walsh wrote.

“Man that’s okay with brutally murdering babies is now concerned with how we kill rodents, calling it ‘inhumane,'” someone tweeted, along with a clown face emoji.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, supports the proposal.

“PETA thanks Rep. Ted Lieu for his compassion and leadership in introducing the Glue Trap Prohibition Act of 2024,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said, according to Lieu’s press release. “This crucial legislation can help protect vulnerable species of wildlife and save tens of thousands of small animals each year from being injured, permanently disabled, and killed by dehydration, injury or starvation in these primitive, cruel traps.”
