Humane mouse traps
Is catch and release actually extending their suffering?
We’re told by product marketing that catching alive and then releasing a mouse to the wild is the humane thing to do. As much as I want this to be true I’m currently not convinced. With the stress of being held captive and then released into an unknown area, is this really the best option for the mouse or is to to alleviate our own conscience?
