Man releases trapped mouse into the
wild rather than exterminate it… only
for hawk to swoop and kill it
within seconds

A man carefully released a mouse he had captured back into the wild rather than kill only for a hawk to swoop and kill it within seconds. The unfortunate series of events was captured on camera by a friend who witnessed the doomed release. The YouTube clip begins with the man, is not identified, as he takes the mouse to a park in a bin to release it back into the wild. He reaches into the plastic dustbin and tries to coax the small animal out onto the ground covered in patches of snow.

As a young boy, I saved a ground mole from our family cat who was playing with it before the meal began. The little blind monster immediately sunk its front teeth into my finger and it took more than three shakes throw it to the ground. I gave a thumbs up sign to Fluffy continue as before.

Environmentalists in my area put a pen of chickens in a wooded area to determine the presence of some mosquito they were interested in. The next morning they returned to discover feathers and blood. Coyetes ate their experiment the 1st nite.

When my daughter was about 4 we had a problem with mice. We caught one, in one of those humane traps, and released it in our front yard. My daughter watched it scamper towards a bush and get intercepted by a cat.

I paused for a minute clenching my teeth. Luckily, she liked the kitty.

I immediately replace the humane traps with the kill kind.

That´s what he gets for giving the mouse a cute name like "Whiskers." There´s a good reason we didn´t give names to the cattle we raised as beef for the table. Our domestic pets have names, and even they (or we) aren´t immune from the ravages of Mother Nature. Sorry about that. Maybe we need a new law eliminating and/or banning such unfairness.

A couple of decades ago there was a story about a sea otter that had been rescued and nursed back to health, and they took a class of schoolkids down to the ocean to see it be released, and if I remember right the school band was playing and it was a big whoop-te-do. Anyway, the otter got a dozen yards out and an orca snapped it right up.

And that concludes today´s biology lesson, kiddos.

I believe there was a "Third Rock from the Sun" episode where Dick hits a chipmunk. The chipmunk didn´t die and Dick´s life force was to see his complete recovery. When he released it into the wild he was immediately scooped up by an eagle or an owl. Doesn´t make much difference who ate him. It was just nature taking her natural course. The episode was absolutely a hoot. If you have never seen it try to catch it. You will laugh out loud. There is even a reference to "Terms of Endearment" when the munk needs his meds. Funny stuff.

Good for that hawk! Hawks generally raise only one brood of 1-3 offspring per year. Mice can have up to 18 babies every month. Without predators we´d be overwhelmed by the varmints.

I was house-sitting one weekend for a cousin who has a very remote property. The house has tall window walls just right for observing all of the wildlife in the area. One morning I heard a loud thump at the window & went out to find a bird on the back step struggling for breath. I wanted to help but didn´t know what to do for it. While I was standing in the doorway thinking, her big Akita squeezed out the door behind me & swallowed it! I felt bad - but it solved the problem.

The sheriffs thought they were being summoned to the Capitol to discuss ideas for changes to New York´s gun control law, the SAFE Act. Instead, Gov. Andrew Cuomo told them to keep quiet. Opposition to the new law has simmered in upstate areas since Cuomo signed the law in January. Many county sheriffs oppose it, particularly its expanded definition of banned assault weapons, and have spoken out around the state. In January, the New York State Sheriffs´ Association wrote Cuomo with an analysis, and later suggested tweaks.

AMHERST, N.Y. - An Amherst man who had his guns taken away by the state is speaking out after the state admitted it made a mistake by suspending his pistol permit. David Lewis is the man State Police deemed so mentally ill he was unfit to own a gun. They recommended to a state judge that the 34-year-old librarian´s pistol permit be suspended and the judge signed the order.

An orderly protest over the death of an armed 16-year-old turned into a riot in Brooklyn tonight after young people started lashing out at NYPD officers. Between 60 and 100 rioters gathered around Church and Snyder Ave. in East Flatbush and threw bottles and other debris at police, witnesses said, following a vigil for Kimani Gray, 16, who was shot dead by two plainclothes officers over the weekend. One person has been arrested, though no injuries have been reported. They were lashing out at the NYPD, who they believe are responsible for the teen’s death.

ROCHESTER — Starting April 15, New York will have the smallest gun magazine limit in the country, and all signs indicate no gun makers have plans to accommodate it. Gun manufacturers have never had a reason to make a magazine with fewer than 10 rounds, because no state required it until now. And, as far as local gun dealers and the Democrat and Chronicle have been able to determine, there are no manufacturers planning to make seven-round magazines. This means that in less than two months, gun dealers such as Paul Martin, owner of Pro-Gun Services in Victor…

CHICAGO — A federal appeals court won´t reconsider an earlier ruling that Illinois´ concealed carry ban is unconstitutional. A three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Illinois´ ban in December and gave lawmakers until June 8 to legalize the concealed carry of firearms. Attorney General Lisa Madigan asked for all 10 judges to review the decision, saying it conflicted with decisions by other federal appellate courts and goes beyond what the U.S. Supreme Court has held. Illinois is the only state in the nation that still has a ban in place.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.
