Because we live in a wooded rural area, and do not have any outdoor cats, I have to actively take care of a number of mouse and rat traps in the garages.
I don't mind disposing of the stiff, but I really hate it when one of the rodents gets caught by a leg and isn't killed.
That is what I have today. There is a rat caught in a snap trap in the fireplace clean out access closet.
Looks like it got him by the foot, and he can neither free himself, not get thru where ever he came in.
We have all the holes screened over, but he still got in, and if he was not trapped, he would go up into my attic.
Craig will kill it for me when he gets home.
But for now, I feel very sorry for it.
I want to catch it and take it to a vet!
No, I will not do that.
It is a dirty disease carrying rodent, and he doesn't belong in my house.
But I feel like a horrible person!
Update: the deed is done.
