So a few minuets ago I was checking the mouse traps in the pantry (because my dog was oddly interested in them) and found one that had just gotten a mouse but not killed it yet. The trap had broken it's back and some of it's organs were sticking out. I put it outside near the door so I could find and dispose of the body in the morning. I was just going to leave it to expire on it's own, but it was doing these wheezing gasps and shuddering and I felt sorry for the little thing, so I put him out of his misery. 30 seconds in a cup of water vs. lingering with a broken back and crushed organs for a few hours. Dunno why I'm posting this, I guess I just want to be told to stop being an overly sentimental whiner.
