Extremely gory but humane mouse kill.
I found this poor mouse, and to put it out of it’s misery I decided to hang it by its tail so I could shoot it more easily. Some of you may or may not agree with the fact I picked it up by its tail and used it to hang it there. But, what’s done is done now I’m afraid.
So after I hung it, I knew what had to be done. I took a deep breath, reloaded my HW77 .22 and gently put the pellet in. Holding the rifle as carefully as I could, I looked down the scope and took aim, straight for the vitals.
In the end, I ended up taking 5 shots at the poor mouse. It just had to be done, not a pipsqueak more was heard from the poor wounded thing.
Unfortunately, as a result of that many pellets striking its now lifeless corpse, the tail separated completely from its body.
