That is barbaric, no other word for it!

“The LPO estimates 40,000 birds are caught using glue sticks by 5,000 hunters every year. The hunters are allowed to catch four types of thrush and one of blackbird, but secretly filmed video shown to the Guardian last year showed robins, blue tits, warblers and finches struggling and dying on glue-sticks or being pulled off and discarded like litter. Last year, LPO activists found a dead kestrel, its wings gummed with glue.”

There’s no excuse for this appalling behaviour, it should be stopped with immediate effect.

That's not hunting. It's hideous cruelty.
Horrible, just horrible.
I've seen glue traps for rats and mice too, unbelievably vile and cruel.

Do they do them for moles?
