I'm not kidding. If you don't like to see dead animals or the circle of life, please leave now. There's nothing bloody or gory, but still, if you're a bleeding heart like I am, this will not please you.
The below three pics are the reason why I had to resort to using the deathly hallows traps on the mice in my house.
I can not have this happening. I've had to throw away so much food because of these fuckers. I'm so over feeling sorry for the mice.
Yeah, that's an apple. That had to be thrown away. And no, they're not nibbling and spitting. They're eating it.
This was a brand new bag of trail mix. They chewed through the plastic and got to the good stuff. This is a $4 bag of trail mix that I had to toss. I could barely afford it the first time.
This is big ass container of nuts. My mom likes these. I don't. So, no loss for me, but still. They ate through the plastic lid. You can see how full the can is. Practically to the top.
Here's where it gets a little macabre.
Because Max is still a puppy (and really, what dog doesn't), I have to find a place to place the carcasses where he won't go and get them and bring them back to me a few days later. All nasty smelling and dripping post mortem ooze.
So, I put 'em up in a tree.
Yep. A tree.
Guess how many I caught in all?
SEVEN fucking mice. Two of them I let go. Y'all read about that.
The other 5? Yeah, deader than doornails.
Count the tails.
Speaking of Max and rodents, Sunday night, he caught a mole. He actually dug it up out of the ground and caught it.
He then played with it. All night. Then he hid it where I can't find it. I'm sure I'll smell it soon.
Now, I actually had the opportunity to "save" this mole from Max but chose not to.
Why not you ask?
Cause they dig these tunnels in all over the yard. And when it rains, it softens the dirt to the point that if you're walking in the yard, you start to sink into the ground. I've sprained my ankle a couple of times and nearly fell flat on my ass another.
You can see the dirt on his nose where he was digging.
Yeah, I declined all doggie kisses Sunday night.
Sorry if you're offended, but I just can't live with these critters any more. I've had to throw away about a dozen shirts and sweaters where they've eaten holes in them or pooped and peed so much, the stains won't come out.
