You Mess with the Mouse, You’ll Get the Tail End of It

Animal rights activists will love this one. A guy finds a mouse inside his house, and catches it. He could have let it go outside, or done something humane with the mouse. Or, if he decided to kill it, he could have chosen some painless way (though I couldn’t hope to tell you painless ways to kill a mouse, never killed one, hope to never have to).

Instead, 81 Year Old Luciano Mares decided to have a bit of fun, and be cruel to our small fury friend; he decided to burn it. “I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire.” Unfortunately for Mr. Mares, however, the mouse had a sense of justice, and while burning, ran back to the side of the house, where he set the New Mexico house on fire.

No one (but the mouse) was hurt in the incident, but Mares’ house and everything inside was destroyed. Next time, maybe he’ll think twice before being that cruel to a defenseless animal.
