Here we go, from the USA Today from a few months back:
“Those suffering from musophobia would be wise to steer clear of the South Farallon Islands. The archipelago, which sits just 27 miles off San Francisco, is the most rodent-dense island in the world, with an average of 500 Eurasian house mice occupying each of its 120 acres (that’s 60,000 total).”
Now I’ll tell you, I have had it with these motherfucking mice on this motherfucking island.
So why don’t we finally get rid of them, like this:
South Farallon Islands Invasive House Mouse Eradication Project: Revised Draft Environmental Impact Statement
(That’s posted on a either pro-mouse or anti-mouse website – I just can’t tell and don’t really care.)
A few years back, up in Alaska, the Feds killed off all the rats on Rat Island in the Rat Island Group:
THE RAT ISLAND RAT ERADICATION PROJECT: A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF NONTARGET MORTALITY - Final report issued December 2010
See? That was a huge success. Now the chopper pilots were nervous up there ’cause a big storm was coming so they wanted to bug out of there with a quickness so they didn’t follow their marching orders very well so more bald eagles died than was necessary. But they killed all the rats on Rat Island, hurray!
All we need to do is nothing. Then the feds can get off their asses and start killing all the mice.
“More study” is NOT needed.
That’s your update.
