The information given here will put paid to your state of confusion and teach you what to do about the mouse that you have just caught.
Just let it go
After trapping a mouse, you can decide just to let it go. What to do is to take the trap cage out outside far from home and release the small animal to the wild again. Nature will thank you for it. This method will save you a good amount of money, and it will also benefit nature; even if you cannot recover the clothes and documents that the mouse has eaten, it is still a win-win situation for everyone.
• Never release them close to the house; take them as far into the bush as possible to make sure they will rarely find their ways back to the house.
