"As a minimum, there needs to be further encouragement of anyone conducting pest control operations (including household users) to at least consider animal welfare, if not use the most humane method possible. To do this, there needs to be a good understanding or consensus on the relative humaneness of available tools."
--  Animal welfare and pest control: Where are we now? -- pg. 5, Kate E Littin, Cheryl E O’Connor, Animal Welfare Directorate, MAF Biosecurity New Zealand, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, PO Box 2526, Wellington, New Zealand.
