At the end of a long day of rain, my daughter informed me that I’d left the lid off the garbage can in which we store our bird seed. It was too late to save the seed — it was drenched. But when I went out to inspect the damage, I noticed something else in the bottom of the can.
We occasionally get mice in our house, and I have declared total no-surrender war on them. But this one wasn’t in the house. As I leaned over to get a closer photo, it just cowered.
I had a dilemma on my hands. Should I kill it, or should I let it go?
What do you think I did? What would you have done?
