Revenge is sweet for Mice & Men

Trapped mouse thrown into fire gets revenge: sets home ablaze

FORT SUMNER, N.M. — A mouse got its revenge against a homeowner who tried to dispose of it in a pile of burning leaves. The blazing creature ran back to the man's house and set it on fire.

Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner said he caught the mouse inside his house and wanted to get rid of it.

"I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house," Mares said from a motel room Saturday.

Village Fire Chief Juan Chavez said the burning mouse ran to just beneath a window, and the flames spread up from there and throughout the house.

No was hurt inside, but the home and everything in it was destroyed.
Wow, it sucks the guy lost his house and all his possessions...but holy crap, how callous are you if you can throw a live animal into a fire?? I guess I'm a sissy - I wouldn't be able to do that.
I'm surprised there were no dumb cats to chase the thing. Ah well, maybe next time, - I can dream.
wow. gotta just suck to be that guy. mean enough to toss live animals in a fire, but now homeless at 81.

wonder if his home insurance covers acts by fiery mice?
This story's been the "most popular" on Yahoo all day long. Hopefully after making National news the community will step up and help him relocate and settle.

Uhhh, hopefully being the key word.
There will be no donations from PETA.. ;o)

Hey Mark.. easy on the dumb cats. ha
