MC2 Post 802 The Mice Are Falling, The Mice Are Falling


U.S. Government Bombs Guam with 
Frozen Mice to Kill Snakes

These Guys:

The mice-bomb program is currently underway with Dan Vice, assistant state director of the US Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services in the Pacific, telling Radio Australia that 250 poisoned mice have so far been dropped in a trial run. Researchers are now working to see if the preliminary mice-bombs worked.

 It might also cut bills for taxpayers: the brown tree snake costs $1-4 million dollars in direct damages and lost productivity per yer due mostly to snaked-caused power outages, which occur at a rate of roughly one every three days.
