    I thought they were the best until I found a mouse and a very very tiny just-born baby in the trap.

    Had no idea WTF to do. I had previously released the other mice I trapped in a field a mile or more away.  

    I did the same, but it really bothered me since I had no idea if the Mom came back to find her baby, as when I released both she bolted much earlier than I could release the newborn.

      when I was 15.   I borrowed a live-trap from my biology teacher when I heard a mouse in the fireplace.  I caught the mouse, and the next morning, she was in the trap with 3 newborn mice.  I had an aquarium, which I converted to a terrarium and kept the mice until they looked old enough to let loose in the back yard.

      January 20. 2009 cannot come soon enough.
