This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

In this Badge Bit you will make a live mouse or rodent trap and show that it works.

Here are some nice videos on live mouse traps.

Approved BB submission
Took 3 tries, but finally caught a mouse with our DIY live trap! Ended up using a 5 gallon bucket with a ramp leading up to the top with some bait on a bottle that spins and causes the mouse to drop into the bucket.

When all four tires fall off your canoe, how many tiny ads does it take to build a doghouse?
