How's this for revenge?

Mouse tossed into fire sets house ablaze

Items compiled from Tribune news services
Published January 9, 2006


FT. SUMNER, NEW MEXICO -- A mouse got its revenge against a homeowner who tried to dispose of it in a pile of burning leaves. The blazing creature ran back to the man's house and set it on fire.

Luciano Mares, 81, of Ft. Sumner said he caught the mouse in his house..

"I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire," Mares said from a motel room Saturday.

Village Fire Chief Juan Chavez said the burning mouse ran to just beneath a window, and the flames spread up from there.

No one was hurt inside, but the home and everything in it was destroyed.

I don't mean to sound like some PETA freak or something, but why is it that nobody seems to care that this guy threw some poor mouse into a fire? Eh, I guess he got more than he bargained for anyway when the little thing burned his house up.

Wow!

( i've been known to take live mice outside knowing very well that they may end up back in my house anyway........but I would never try to burn one alive )

I'm not really sure if I should have sympathy for vermin. You have to draw the line somewhere, I suppose. Is setting it on fire any different to having the thing get its insides crushed in a mousetrap and sufficating/bleeding to death?

I see your point, but my God, there has to be a more humane way to dispose of a creature than burning it to death. I mean, that's just sick. If the guy wanted to get rid of the thing so badly, he could have captured it in a box and deposited it a few blocks away. That way, the poor thing isn't incinerated and his house doesn't go up in flames.

Ah, karma...

It's still a living breathing animal that feels pain just the same as any human.

Exactly. Nothing deserves to be put through that.

Unbelievable!

It sounds to me like you care more about a mouse than the man's house! (that ryhmes)

The old man wasn't malicious in his killing of the mouse. He just tossed it in to the fire. It's not like he was purposely torchering it. What should have he done, had memorial service for it? What should have he done to kill it?
