Today at my school's land lab (for FFA) these girls caught a rat in a barrel and moved it into a cage. I told them to just release it really far away, but they said they already released it twice and it came back a third time already. I asked them how they knew it was the same one, but they said it had the same markings. Anyway, they didn't know how to kill it. So they grabbed a big rock and dropped it through the cage at first it just bounced off the rat's back, but they just kept on hitting it with a rock until it died. It was rather sad to watch, even if they are pests, they are still animals and they still have feelings. Anyway, does anyone know a more humane way to kill the next rat?
