I caught a mouse (in the house) the other day. I saw where it was headed, and placed an empty water jug on its side in the mouse’s path and stood perfectly still. The mouse encountered the jug, sniffed at it and climbed into the hole and so I scooped up the jug. It was a baby mouse. One of the residents got to keep it as a pet. We don’t have the hanta virus here. I don’t think we do, anyway.
