Mouse in a bag

Recommended Posts

Today, I picked up a camo bag containing a cache, and a mouse popped out and scurried away. When I opened the bag, it was full of dried leaves (and the clip-lock box underneath those).

 

The mouse will have to look for a new home - his leaves are on the ground now and the bag is tied up more tightly. But I'm sure he'll find somewhere good.

I personally hate any kind of bag around a cache, the ones with some kind of waterproofing actually start to stink after only a few months, the plain fabric ones just start to rot.

 

A thought here under Schedule 2 (European protected species of animals) of the Conservation (Natural Habitats &c.) Regulations 1994, and Statutory Instrument 2008 No.2172 The Conservation (Natural Habitats, &c.) (Amendment) (England and Wales) Regulations 2008. if the mouse was a dormouse, you would have committed a criminal offence by destroying it's habitat; So another very good reason to scrap the use of these bags.

snipped.

A doremouse's natural habitat is not a camo bag!

 

:)

 

But point noted.

FYI it an animal is in a man made object in the wild, it constitutes its natural habitat :)

I think the little furry critter found my computer desk last night, at around 04:00!!

The bugger woke me up when he was nibbling the corner off a bar of white lemon and pepper chocolate I was saving.... :) He scuttled off and hid as soon as the light was on..

 

The traps are baited, set and waiting!!!! :)

... presumably with the remains of the lemon and pepper chocolate? :)

 

That's obviously a gourmet mouse you have there. It appreciates good food. It's probably watching Delia's Christmas TV programme just now...

Humane traps I sincerely hope?

The one and only time I encountered a mouse while caching was a few months ago.

 

I was looking for a micro in a line of trees (groan) and there was a dead branch lying against the 'Y' two branches. I moved it and saw a little hole with vegetation stuffed in it.

 

Aha ! I thought and stuck my fingers in - only for a poor mouse to jump out and scamper off. Gave me a hell of a fright :D:)

 

I replaced everything as it was in the hope the mouse might return after I had gone.

 

The micro was in the next tree :)

The "good stuff" didn't work... It was the Tesco's value white chocolate and peanut butter that finally helped the furry little chocolate thief shuffle off this mortal coil... He is now deceased, gone to meet his maker and join the choir invisible. He is an Ex-mouse!!! :laughing:

One of my favourite caching photo's taken by a local cacher and for anyone that remembers bagpuss, the mice are saying "Heave, Heave, Heave" ;-) : -

Are these Doremice? Or just regular Mugglemice?

Common or garden or (wood!) Wood Mice. Dormice are orangey in colour, House Mice are grey. The other species which looks like this is the Yellow-necked Mouse (which these could be) but it's much rarer.

"OK, We've found it. All we need to do now, is open the thing, make our mark -I'll nibble the the corner of the log book- then find a computer thingy to log our visit"
