Cruel Traps Are Killing Kittens?!

Hazel Park Harness Raceway in Hazel Park, Michigan, has reportedly set out body-gripping traps in an effort to kill groundhogs. Using these devices is extremely cruel, as they cause massive suffering while terrified victims slowly die of suffocation.

Animals NEED your voice!

These traps are also dangerous to “nontarget” animals, including protected wildlife species and even companion animals. PETA was told that a kitten was recently caught and gruesomely killed by a trap at this facility!

Here’s all that you need to do:

  • Send a polite note to raceway officials and urge them to remove any lethal traps that may be set and instead use humane and effective wildlife restriction measures.

The cause a slow painful death for an innocent animal that had done nothing wrong in its own mind. Think of your own family pet would you like to put them through that? Don’t put these poor animals through it either. I urge you to contact a humane society and find humane ways to trap wildlife and not make them suffer.
    Thank You

Not only do these traps cause slow, painful deaths for the innocent groundhogs, other animals, such as your family’s favorite dog or cat, are getting trapped in them too. Animals caught in the horrifying traps suffer in terrible agony as they slowly die from suffocation. I urge you to find humane wildlife restriction measures, and to not let the animals suffer because of your choice.
    Thank you for your consideration.”

    How could someone do this?? It’s sickening enough that they were intending to kill groundhogs, but it’s even worse that other animals were caught.
