Glue mouse traps Katamari Damacy and the Farmer in the Dell

Since we live near the creek and we have a veritable wildlife refuge around us, sometimes outside creatures try to come inside. In the fall and winter a mouse or two tries to make it into the garage. This week, one adventurous mouse made it into the pantry. We were having none of that, so that day we cleaned the area and bought the glue traps.

The next morning we got one. Herein lies the quandary of what to do with it. I realized that when we bought the glue traps we had set down a certain path of elimination, you can't peal the mouse off and send him on his way. I had visions of setting a sticky mouse outside where he then collects a cat that wants to eat him and gets stuck. Then a dog, then the farmer's wife and the farmer in a Katamari Damacy sticky ball review of the characters in the Farmer in the Dell. Perhaps instead of the cheese the gluetrap stands alone.

We (not me) bagged him up and threw him in the trash. I think there was only one. Now the Franciscans and the humanitarians out there can tell me what the alternatives are to our glue traps. Leave your suggestion in the comments.
