Problem with live catch is if you don't check it daily, and if another mouse can get in (which is the case here) they'll go full cannibal... So some people think they're being "humane" but it doesn't always work out that way...

That's one of the classic 8 signs.

Put him in the freezer if you want to be nice about it.

how is putting it in the freezer nicer than a hammer blow? You're torturing the thing for an hour vs. instant lights out. It's like putting a live lobster in a pot of cold water and then putting it on the fire.

Ive caught them using the bathtub. Give them a way up to the tub and they will get in and can't get out. Caught 3-4 over the years this way.

If left in the bottle long enough I believe they would chew their way out. You need to check the bottle every morning.

you guys are going to be so fk'd when the new law goes in effect. You knew it was coming, the Dumbocrats and Liberanals want to protect the poor disease ridden mice and commit billions of taxpayer dollars to building sanctuary communes for these poor creature. Anyone caught harming mice will be subject to 5 years imprisonment and forfeiture of their home which will become a mice commune . . .
