I hope he is convicted and spends the rest of his life in jail or a mental institute. Regina Mangan Prevention preferred Yorktown Heights, N.Y.: Voicer Ronald Gersh makes a great point — rats thrive in areas where trash is unmanaged. Methods for deterrence include cleanliness, sealing holes, mint sprays and bags, ultrasonic plug-in devices and bins that are raised and sealed. Glue traps are barbaric. They’re illegal in many parts of the world, numerous stores stopped selling them and many entities stopped using them. Glue traps can cause up to five days of non-stop agony, often made worse by damaged organs and broken and chewed limbs from attempts to escape. Instructions on the box state to toss the animals in the trash. Glue traps cause unthinkable suffering, all while ignoring the root causes of any issues. The poisons and gasses are brutali
