I know this sounds horrible but what is the quickest easiest way to kill a mouse when it is in a trap but not dead?

If the mouse can't run away with the trap, let the cat see it and he might start playing with it because the mouse can't run
It might not scare the cat so much
Idk good luck. Let us know what u did do

Well, I found one once smashed at the stomach. He was faceup and doing sit-ups. (This is not a joke.) Normally these problems are turned over to my hubby. But I was alone so I held it over the toilet, opened the trap and flushed it.

You should have seen us the other night when a baby 'possum chased us around the chicken coop. Rod was screaming like a little girl.:shocked: He finally managed to pin it with a rake, then stepped on its head and for good measure shot it with the pellet gun.:hammer:

Just stick it in a bucket of water. The most awful traps to use are those sticky glue ones. We have always used the snap traps and it usually kills them instantly by snapping their back. We tried the sticky glue matts and will never use those again. A whole family got stuck on it and they were trapped alive and in great misery. The babies had their little faces all stuck and the older ones were nearly breaking their backs trying to get loose. I suggest not using those - not using poison - but instead use a snap trap and keep a cat close to help with the mice problems.

OK we have a bunch of mice in the house and they won't go away we have set traps and tried poison but it isn't working. The cat has caught a few just tonight but she likes to play with them and they get away. We can't bomb the house because it it too dangerous and will kill the pets help!

Try the Tom Cat blocks. But be absolutely sure no other animals can get the blocks or eat the mice that die from it.
