I know this is not exactly on topic, but how are frozen mice killed?
The ones I get in the pet shop near me are gassed with CO2 as are the ones offered for sale by my internet based livefood supplier.

Well, Carbon dioxide being the nicer alternative to being bludgeoned to death with a spoon.

It is most definitely less painful for the mouse, but when you get right down to it, there really is nothing nice about it at all.

No, there really isn't, but one way can be construed as much better than another. Thats where the humane part comes in. Its either inhaling a odorless, colorless gas and instantly passing out, and never waking up again. Or, the alternative, being slowly massicated to death in the jaws of a predator. Guess which one, I'd opt for.

On a side, note, I really cannot remember just exactly how this thread got started. I'll have to review.

I suppose we should wonder what the mouse would opt for.....

Thread started with a question about capability, and then degenerated, as this topic always does, until it finally reached here...... Don't think capability was truly in question though.... For moral support, most likely.

That's so wrong its not funny. They are humanly euthanized with carbon dioxide and then frozen.
The bigger ones maybe, but the quickest way to kill the pinkies is to stick em in the freezer. I work at a lab and this is done, we handle more than 10k mice a year. I'm sure the people that sell mice as feeders do the same. Quick and easy.

I fail to see how slowly freezing something to death is quicker than instantaneously gassing it. I worked in a lab too ;).


But this is outside the subject and frankly I am tired of arguing.

If that is so then your lab should be shut down and I wouldn't advertise that on a website like this.

Thats interesting as I lost a mylasion jewel to one. I think you should rack up some exp. before making ignorant statements.
i dont need decades of experience to know that a newborn mouse with no fur, no teeth, and unopened eyes that can't even walk can't "mutilate" a centipede. if you are talking about older mice, say a fuzzy, don't say use the term "pinkie." get your terms straight before you go making ridiculous, stupid statements.

the best way to kill a mouse is to drop it in a community of asian forest scorpions, it gets pulled into its component parts rather quickly.

Yup...it's been at the immature bickering stage where no new info is brought up.

This is kind of like the 'Everyone Hates Me' thread's ugly, annoying little sister.

Yea, I gotta agree. Kinda sad I helped contribute at one point. Apologies to everyone who actually comes here to learn.

place a large cheese on the middle of your pedes tank...
set lose the cute mouse on the house.
and make pathways for the mouse leading to the tank.
if it destroyed your favorite stinky sock
i think you would prefer tossing the "rat" to the tank afterwards.
and would enjoy your wrath to the rat
...
but if it didnt destroyed your sock...
then set lose your pede...
and maybe one day...
youll find them both inside your shoe...


^^


LOL!!!
