The extremely inhumane, humane mouse trap!


My brother shares a flat with a few mates and quite recently has had a problem with mice. So, they needed to buy a mouse trap. The decision was to buy a humane mouse trap, which of course means no mice are harmed, killed or starved you know... no terrible things like that! They are caught, cannot escape then set free in someone else’s house… *Er… I mean the street… *cough

Anyway, so they set up this mouse trap and after trying and trying to catch the mice they failed. The humane mouse trap had failed... again and again. The mouse trap was banished to a cupboard where it would remain for months. Upon eventually going into this cupboard they were surprised to see the humane mouse trap, the bigger surprise was that the trap had caught a mouse… albeit it some time ago! A mouse “skeleton” was found in the trap. So the poor mouse had indeed starved to death. I suppose the humane mouse trap worked after all… sort of.
