The Animal Justice Party (AJP) is opposed to reactionary approaches to high numbers of house mice (Mus musculus), and believes that proactive strategies are more humane and effective.
More must be done by government and industry to predict, prevent, and reduce the impact of population booms. The rushed approval and roll-out of non-specific poisons can be a disaster for the environment, with secondary poisoning of wildlife and companion animals and long-term ecological impacts being of great concern. Poisoning mice is cruel and ineffective in the long-term.
- Oppose the use of poisons and other lethal methods against mice.
- Work with the grain industry and researchers to predict and prevent future population booms in mice.
- Invest in research into non-lethal fertility control measures.
