In other Varmint killing news

We keep the big bag of sunflower seeds in the garage, that we use for the birdfeeders. Some creature has found this stash, torn a hole in the bag and spread seed shells all over the garage.
We couldn't take the chance that the little thief would work his way into the house proper, so I put out a trap. Not knowing if it was a rat or mouse, I decided too much force is better than too little. I bought a big Ol rat trap and set it up next to the bag.
A couple days later, I went into the garage and saw that the trap was moved several feet and there was a little arm stuck in it.
Assuming he didn't already bleed out somewhere, I'm guessing being a three legged rat is not a long term gig.

Sorry for the slow death, Mr Rat.



  • why do you tell people these things? Poor little rodent.

    I got a tattoo today with a little mouse without one limb in his/her name.

    Sleep tight man.

  • Ooooo, you should put a tattoo of a little mouse limb on the other hand, so you can do tricks at parties.
