Man versus Mouse: Round 2
WARNING: THIS POST MAY BE UNSUITABLE FOR ANIMAL LOVERS AND RODENTS!
Upon waking this morning, Rocky set his clock back, and checked his Trendnet TVIP312 Low-Light WIFI Surveillance Camera. The computer showed a motion detection “event” at 2:00am. (To be precise, it’s unclear whether the event occurred at 2:00am or 1:00am, since the TVIP312 documentation doesn’t disclose the timing algorithm when the clock moves off Daylight Savings Time.)
More important than the precise time of the “event” was the result of the event. Rocky discovered that the wily mouse, which had previously escaped unscathed with all of the peanut butter bait, (see blog post below) foolishly returned to the empty trap. Hoping to find more food, he carelessly stepped on the trigger.
There is a moral here: don’t lick the plate clean! (Jack Spratt take note. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Sprat )
Round 2 Result: By a unanimous verdict, Rocky wins the round and the fight. (The mouse went down for the count.)
[Disclosure: Rocky found a second deceased mouse cum trap off-camera. He won this battle, but the war continues.]
