Target: Michael O’Keefe, District Attorney for Falmouth, Massachusetts

A cruel wildlife trap, containing a razorblade surrounded by peanut butter, was reportedly set at a public park. The trap attracted numerous small mammals, police stated, putting them at risk of injury and death. Demand justice in this case.
Town and state Environmental Police began investigating after they received reports of a tree with a razorblade sticking out of its truck at a public park. Upon closer inspection, they apparently discovered that the blade was surrounded by peanut butter in an attempt to attract local wildlife. Officers stated that multiple squirrels fell victim to the trap, though their injuries were not documented, and children played in the trap’s vicinity. The suspect claimed that he was trying to attract local wildlife, per reports, and a thorough search turned up no additional traps.
Sixty-five-year-old Brian McGrath was charged with animal cruelty, reckless behavior, and wanton injuries to trees. Sign below to demand that he receive the maximum penalty possible, if convicted.
Dear District Attorney O’Keefe,
Multiple animals reportedly fell victim to a cruel trap set at Goodwill Park, leading to charges of animal cruelty and wanton injuries to trees. Per officers, 65-year-old Brian McGrath placed a razorblade in a tree and smeared the area with peanut butter with the intent to attract local wildlife. It worked, per reports, and several squirrels suffered in the process. Children also apparently played in close proximity to the trap, meaning that they were also at risk of injury.
Anyone who could set such a cruel and painful trap is a danger to local animals and they must be punished. I demand that you prosecute this suspect and seek the maximum penalty possible, if he is convicted.
