Once again proving that mice are the most intelligent species on the planet, a mouse that was thrown into a fire by a man in New Mexico exacted a terrible revenge. How on earth did he explain this one to the insurance man ?

A US man who threw a mouse onto a pile of burning leaves could only watch in horror as it ran into his house and set the building ablaze.
Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner, New Mexico, found the mouse in his home and wanted to get rid of it.
“I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house,” he was quoted as saying by AP.
Though no-one was injured, the house and everything in it was destroyed.
“I’ve seen numerous house fires, but nothing as unique as this one,” Fire Department Captain Jim Lyssy said.
New Mexico has seen several major blazes after unseasonably dry and windy conditions which have destroyed 10 homes and devastated more than 53,000 acres (21,200 hectares) of land.

  1. Serves him right. If it had been me, I’d set that man on fire and pay the mouse damages.
    Only another example of human descrimination. When are humnans going to realize that we’re as cute,and cuddly as squirrels only without that nasty bushy tail. Some of us are even more intelligent than you big oafs.
    That must be it. You feel threatened by our intelligence. Don’t worry. We have our own civilization, far from you, and don’t care for human values,and technology.
    Well, except for the microwave to warm up our pizzas. And human beer is pretty good.
