A friend asked if anyone knew a humane way to trap a mouse. This was a method I was once told about for a humane trap.
Put chocolate in a wide necked bottle. Prop it up and put a tea towel in the neck so the mouse can climb up. The idea is the mouse eats the chocolate but then can’t climb out of the bottle because the glass is too steep and slippery. When you find it in the morning use the teatowel to stop up the neck of the bottle and take it outside to release.
It might work, you never know. At least the mouse won’t be eating your food. The bottle should be put in a quiet place so it feels safe. X
