Stop Cruelly Killing Squirrels

Target: Manager of Tanglewood Apartments

Goal: Stop using traps to kill squirrels as a means of population control.

An apartment complex in Indiana has allegedly been setting up torturous traps to kill squirrels as a means of population control. Not only is this incredibly inhumane, but also ineffective. It is time to stop this cruelty.

The apartment complex is supposedly using “body-gripping traps” to kill the squirrels and these traps are as terrible as they sound. The traps can also kill non-target wildlife, including endangered species. The traps are an attempt at population control, however, mass killings often lead to undesired results. When a population dramatically decreases, supplies and resources go up, which leads to increased breeding and an increased population.

Sign this petition and demand the apartment complex get rid of these cruel traps and start using kinder and more effective means of population control.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Manager,

It recently came to my attention that Tanglewood Apartments is supposedly using “body-gripping traps” to kill squirrels as a means of population control. Not only is this incredibly cruel, but mass killings are not an effective method of population control. It is time to start utilizing cruelty-free and effective ways of population control.

When a large portion of a population is killed, supplies go up, which leads to increased breeding and an increased population. In addition, “body-gripping traps” can also kill non-target wildlife, including endangered species. There are humane methods of population control and I strongly encourage you to look into these options.

Please end this cruelty and stop needlessly killing squirrels. These traps are cruel and a waste of your time and money.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This apartment complex is probably killing squirrels because they consider them a “nuisance” and don’t want them going into people’s plants or on their balconies.
    These torturous traps are one of the typical methods used by heartless and sadistic people to “deal with” any animals they don’t like.
    I grew up on an acreage in Alberta where certain family members regularly tortured and viciously killed innocent little wild animals – mostly gophers – because they considered them a “nuisance”. It was horrifying. I think some people just like to torture and kill animals for some depraved reason.
