'Inhumane' trap kills two birds

An animal charity is appealing to people to be more humane - after a glue trap killed two birds.

The Manx SPCA says a trap with two Robins stuck to it was handed in last week, and despite managing to remove them both died from trauma and stress.

From July, they'll be outlawed in England but no such laws are in place here.

The organisation says glue traps are inhumane and cause prolonged suffering, and is asking people not to use them.
