Humane Mouse Traps

Does anybody know where I can get a Humane Mouse Trap besides P.E.T.A.? After seeing Penn & Teller's episode about them, I don't want to end up on their mailing list again.

Go to the local Wal Mart and get a .22 Ruger - they don't feel a thing!

Humane Mouse Trap?

How are the normal ones inhumane? Most of the time it hits their neck, killing them instantly.

Darn, I can't think of anything to put here.

It's inhumane when I have a chance to simply set it free.

I'll only use a lethal mouse trap if I have absolutely no other option.

I thought of that, but it's too fast. I did set a sort of homemade trap where the mouse might run into it, but it never did.

The little guy doesn't really bother me at all. He mostly runs back and forth from under my bed to the back of my entertainment center (they're 'bout 2 feet from each other), and he doesn't damage anything. I just need to set him free B4 one of my cats gets him.

I have a mouse living in my garage in the bottom draw of an old chest of draws, he might have moved his family in by now.

I felt kind of guilty because I was clearing some rubbish out a week or two back and think I disturbed his nest on one of the boxes, little bugger lept out of the box into the air, scared the shit out of me.

So left the bottom draw of this unit open and stuffed in some old curtains that I'd been using as dust sheets for him to make a nest in.

I leave little food parcels for him once a week, they disappear so I assume he's eating them.

Im a big softy at heart...

All vermin should be exterminated.

If a mouse craps all over my house, I want the bugger dead.

Oooh, did I mention I also have a squirrel that visits the garden daily as well, costs me a fortune in nuts to keep him fed

Oh, and there's the hedgehog as well, and I had some blackbirds and thrushes nesting in the hedge as well this year, oh had some cracking toads hopped in from next doors pond as well last year..

What the hell good does it do to set the roden free when it's just going to come right back into your house? It's like going, "Oh, hello Mr. Moth, swarming around my light, I'll just move you over here". It'll come the fuck back!

No! You've got it all wrong! You use a shovel!
Intial splat, then decapitate to make sure.

Never pick a fight with a creature smaller than you that has no means of defending itself against you.

I'd have absolutely no problem at all about smacking you over the head with a shovel as you're probably big enough to fight back, but attacking something about a 1000 times smaller than you are just makes you, well, an ill mannered bully

Well, God(as you may know It to be)is one thing!
But I believe in that Nature (with a capitah N)
has plans for all of it's creatures! Some overturn soil, some control insect population, some are just great to look at! And that's ok, too!

Oh and JRSellers, you've been here what? 2 months?

Read up on the Rules regarding flaming other members and you might just make it to three months.
