Why is This Mouse’s Tail Bright Orange?
Because my dear husband loves to trap mice, but does not have the heart to kill them. After capturing, he lets the mouse go. I asked, how can he be sure he is not catching the same mouse. He decided to conduct an experiment, painting the tail of any captured mouse with brilliant orange non-washable paint. None have showed up back at our home, but if you happen upon a cute orange-tailed mouse, please let us know!
