How about that West Point Mouse Release video ? In case you haven’t seen it, after spending several sleepless nights sharing a room with a mouse, a big-hearted West Point cadet decided to catch the little trespasser and release it in a nearby field. The video begins with the cadet shooing a mouse out of a plastic container, saying, “C’mon, Whiskers! as the mouse runs out and across the field.

Beware The Killer Mouse Droppings…


Add in a few mouse droppings, however – along with a bloody door handle – and suddenly things are considered to be unacceptable. Everything up to mouse droppings – including raising animals for food, subjecting them to torture and death and harvesting their body parts – is just grand, but we can’t be doing with those pesky droppings making everything so gross…. As a society we have a warped perception of what is gross.

Mouse Migration

Eco Friendly Daily

Waves of human migration may have brought mouse passengers from different locations as early as the Iron Age (7th century BCE to 5th century CE). In fact, the house mouse is thought to have originated in central Asia but is now found worldwide. There are other historical mysteries that could be solved through mouse genetics. The history of human migration patterns contains plenty of mysteries.

Big Fish: Rodent-Eating Trout

Nature Conservancy - Science

The trout surely had easier prey than the occasional mouse. It’s likely just as anglers say: when a small mouse falls into the stream, brown trout emerge from the depths and devour it. Vole, it’s what’s for dinner. These three rodents were pulled from the stomach of a brown trout. Ralph Stewart photo. By Matt Miller, senior science writer.

We call it a “mouse gradation year” I was not able to find a catchy English term for “gradation year” – it’s what happens when a certain species showing population cycles reaches a peak year. On the other side, and to even the score, the German term “mouse” is rather unspecific compared to the repertoire the English-speakes have at their service. If however you are a larger “mouse”-like rodent you are a rat.

How To Grow Cucamelon

Green (Living) Review

Nowadays, the cucamelon is also known as mouse melon, Mexican sour gherkin, or Sandiita, which means “little watermelon” in Spanish. Add a bit of whimsy to your garden this year with an adorable cucamelon plant. This small plant is a delicate, yet strong vining one that produces dainty fruit resembling a tiny one-inch watermelon. The fruit has the surprising flavor of a slightly tangy cucumber. The fruit’s interesting combination of appearance and flavor gives the cucamelon its name.

Watching a titmouse take hairs from a human is something I have always longed to see but I never considered how cool it might be to see a titmouse take hair from another creature.

When Is Bird Baiting OK?

I think what pissed me off most about that video was that as the owl flew in to get the mouse and they yanked it away–the blatant teasing with a live mouse (which is a whole separate area of ethics) was grotesque to me.

It’s a wholesome activity that grandparents share with the kids.
