For the nuisance he has been creating the last two nights, I did place a fail-safe bait, but on seeing him trapped this morning, I had the biggest dilemma - should I kill him or just let him loose?

Look at his eyes:

Isn't he pleading for release?

Oh! Please let him go, if only as reward for his modelling for you. If you don't let him go, please do NOT tell us what you did to him. This is the season of goodwill . . . . can you take him some distance away before you release him?

Yes, let him go...!!!

Take him far away and let him live out his life...! ;)

another solution, take him to a vet, get him medicated and make him your pet. :)

Kill him, in 1 year, 1 female mouse can make OVER 100 new mice, and her kids will mate too, after only 3 month etc etc. At least 500 descendants if not MUCH more in a year, and rise exponentially

They have the ability to potentially spread disease, and in a century, we might just start getting serious problems.

Wow - what a great shot - I love the last one. But my vote is

Oh Raghu, I sympathize with your dilemma! If raised as pets, rats and mice make wonderful loving companions. I've owned a few, in particular, rats are very lovable. However, wild ones are very harmful, carrying serious diseases and very destructive.

That's all I'm going to say. Whatever you do, please be humane....:cry:

I have had the bad fortune to have problems as well but I dont have a fail proof trap instead I have a great mouser and she had the other morning caught a Rat this makes #2 we have an abandoned house next door that I am sure has garbage off the side of the house. Well they are coming this way to find new food and warm walls.. one had made its way inside.. poor thing the cat wore it down enough for me to catch it in a ol ice cream tub but before I could turn it loose it died of freight heart attack what ever we good at least I did not do it! Its going to the dump for burial dont need to lay out any plot for the family to visit! You can tell me what you did with it I noticed that this is a common problem on the rise have they taken a census of rats and mice lately.. they should include that on ours course it would be had to tell how many unless we do guesstimate the head count... and have the government figure out what they are going to do with them... maybe make a Rat Mice Island ??? I do think the second one is cute little hands over the bars and that nose with whiskers is making him say, when I get out I am going to sniff my way again... Cute!

I would let him go too. I know its silly but how could anyone kill a little mouse, especially after taking his picture?
