Bad Advertising

I went down to Wal*Mart yesterday to buy some of those sticky glue mouse traps. The kind I wanted were being sold by the name of "E Z-Catch." I took one look at the picture on the box and suddenly felt so guilty and sad that I almost gave buying them at all. Even now, having set the traps, I still feel a little like a murderer. Here is the cover of the box:

Why in the world would a mouse-trap manufacturer want to put a picture of a weeping mouse on the front of their product?

I looked everywhere on the box....even inside....but I could not find the word PETA anywhere. I'm wondering if maybe I should become a vegetarian.
