I think the point here is to reduce suffering as much as possible. Just because you walk away and don't have to watch the mouse drown, doesn't mean that it isn't any less cruel.Why not just get a good pair of tongs, take the rat or mouse with the tongs, shove it down in a bucket of water for a few minutes, pull it out its all dead and such? Or maybe just devise something you can tie to there feet that will make them sink to the bottom and then just walk away for a few minutes, come back and the deed is done? .
