Letter: Stop using rusted traps

This letter is for the inhumane people of Aberdeen who are putting out 100-year-old, rusted, barbaric rat traps for stray cats.

I have now found three. One nice bay laying in the alley in the rain starved, his paws mangled, dead, trap still clamped to his paws.

Two others in a bush, the other caught in a tree. They were not strange, they were nice, big, healthy boys neglected by their owners and left to run loose.

I was able to rescue them, but they were in bad shape. It took me 45 minutes and tools to get one out of the rusted trap.

If this is your way, you have lost your way. If you have issues with cats, dogs, squirrels, rabbits — call the city. Those who put out traps deserve a front-row seat in hell.

Remember: people who hate cats will come back as mice in their next life.
