This is stupid.

If PETA really wants to make a difference they need to tell them HOW to effectively control the pest in a PETA friendly way not just to stop doing what they are doing.

If they aren't informed of a better way then what else are they to do. PETA should be a little more constructive and less destructive with there advice.

Do the families of the women inmates in Waseca not have anything better to do? HOLY COW, never have I seen a more rediculous article. Does PETA not recognize that the Warden of FCI Waseca has more pressing matters at hand. Namely, the women that are now incarcerated in Waseca who have committed crimes that are so disgusting (slavery, child porn, murder etc.) they make the glue strips that are used to kill mice seem tame.

I find it inhumane. But what's even more inhumane is waseca allows the male gaurds to go inside the shower rooms with mirrors to look up at the women. Where is this legal? They also allow the male guards to pat down the inmates running their hands around the breast of the inmates and up in the crouch area. Please help me understand this and where i may go or write because I have a sister incarcerated there and I find this morrally wrong and definately severe punishment should be done.

With all do respect the guards have to pat down these women and have been instructed in the procedure. Maybe your sister should have kept out of trouble and she wouldn't be in such a position. It is a fact that women hide things in areas they do not believe will be searched, for the officers' safety this must be done.

This is suppose to be about mice. Do these women want mice running around their cells and nibbling at them while they are sleeping. If not, they should be happy someone is trapping them whether it is with sticky traps, or more conventional traps. I have no sympathy for mice.
If someone wants to start a thread about these poor women behind bars go ahead and start a new one.
