Obviously not equipped with mice safety switches. The particular mouse that completed the circuit must have been momentarily surprised.

Now this brings me to that great Aussie back verandah accessory, the Bug Zapper. We need a Mouse Zapper! This electrocution device could be place in areas of infestation, at ground level, potentially baited to draw them near. When they walk over the grid, Zap.
You would want to keep the cat away from it.
What other devices can we invent to dispatch the rodents?
These electric traps already exist Glen.

I use them around the house and they're very very effective.
Expensive, but they work so much better than any other trap I've tried.
Plus no poison needed and so easy to reset.
