FOR SALE- One day only. Humane mouse traps for Mice. Visit the Summit County Animal Shelter, or Call Insa at Recycle Utah. That’s 1-800 -REC-YCLE. If Insa’s not in…contact Tom at ACME. He’s a cat. For really tough jobs you want Willie Coyote but watch out for falling anvils and incendiary devices. If you would rather make your own mousetrap, search the following website: http://rodentguillotine<freeassemblies2014. Also great tutorial on Youtube. Facebook. Twitter.

Or you could just change your thinking and make a mouse your friend and name him Ralph. He has a motorcycle.
I had to laugh when Insa told the students that getting a cat was a more humane way of dealing with mice, than using mouse traps. If you know anything about cat behavior, you would know that cats play with their kill to an almost demented end. Sometimes they even leave the prize on your doorstep. Now what’s more humane about that? I say, “Dead is dead.”
As for less humane options….Justin, my thirty-two year old step son, says go for the glue traps. The mouse gets stuck and starves to death, or gnaws off its own legs. He also told me of a roommate who got a trap that was just short of capital punishment- a mouse electric chair. Justin had a firsthand death row experience with this device and can attest to the exellence of it. “The electrocution went on for a full minute.” You will have to decide how the cat ranks in all of this. More natural? Yes. More humane? NO!
