  • Hit it with a shovel. Scoop it up with the shovel. Put it in the garbage bin outside.

  • Find a glove, pick up the glue strip by the end opposite the mouse's head and take it outside. Whack it on the head to kill it and throw it away. If you can't whack it yourself, set it somewhere outside (or in a spot the kids can't get to it) until someone else can whack it for you.

  • Oh, you could also drown it in a bucket of water or smother it in a Ziplock baggie. (My SIL does it this way, because she can't whack them.)

  • That is inhumane and disgusting.
    Put the poor thing out of its misery.

  • I'm with you, Jazz...I can't help but think how awful this is for the mouse. :( I like animals and hate to hear of them suffering.

  • If you cannot stand to look at it, let alone touch it, drop a plastic shopping bag over it then hit it hard with a shoe so that it is killed in one blow. Then pick up the bag and immediately take it outside to the garbage can.

  • Oh! Ew! Ew! Yuck! The object is to get rid of mice. If you caught one, you have many, many more. They have 15-17 babies every 30 days. Siblings do mate with each other. So knowing this, Squash the mouse dead. And hope more show up!
