    We've been having some little visitors in our house that are running around at night. So, I set a few traps.

    I'm sitting here in the office and see a mouse run out from under my wife's desk heading towards the antique desk in the corner.

    There, he finds a small piece of cheese attached to a small contraption with metal and springs.

    Yum!

    Dead!

    Think you are pretty tough, eh?

    Well, I'm training my boys now!

    I prefer chemical warfare against the critters.

    I don't want them dying and rotting. But it is rather nasty cleaning them out of the trap.

    Wild, xo.

    I live in the country. Been here for years. We get them from time to time.

    I check the two carefully placed peanut buttered traps (the best bait) under my upstairs sink every day. Most days nothing. I come home from a business trip last week...notice a lil mousie had been snared.

    I see little bug eyes, upside down she is, snapped to death in that little wooden trap.

    I go to pick it up (thinking it had long joined the choir invisible) and
    wiggle wiggle wiggle.
    Fuck. The damn thing was whacking itself in it's last throws as I held the end of the trap. Apparently the neck snap happened only moments earlier.

    <<<<<<aaarrrrgggghhh>>.

    Freakky freaky feeling as I carry this thrashing, dying mass of mousemeat to its little garbage bag and see it die. :eek:

    Eyyuck. Damn mice.

    I've dumped plenty 'O mice. Never a slapping, thrashing, dying one.

    That was gross.
