Mice recently airdropped on Guam were highly toxic to their predators as they were pumped full of Tylenol. The mice were airdropped on the island paradise as food offerings for the Brown Snake. This airdrop is an attempt to eradicate the snake from the island paradise of Guam, according to KPLR 11.com on Dec. 3. The Brown Snake has devastated the island’s native bird population and the slithering creatures have caused millions of dollars in damages to Guam’s electrical infrastructure. The U.S. Government stepped in and offered poisoned mice to the snakes for their dinner.
I wonder whether this will be picked up as an example of government waste?
