Banana Don’s Slice of Americana – Mouse Bombs Over Guam

Earlier this morning on WITL we discussed the recent mouse bombing on Guam. Tree snakes have long been a problem on the island of Guam, a U.S. territory and home to U.S. military bases.. The snakes have no natural enemy so they’ve reproduced rapidly, and now, in some areas, there are 13,000 tree snakes per square mile. Because of this they are constantly crawling into electrical substations, which leads to fried snakes and power outages. The snakes have one weakness. 80 grams or more of acetaminophen, the active ingredient of Tylenol, will kill them. So the U.S. military decided to parachute in their favorite food – dead mice – that had been laced with acetaminophen. Here’s the story from NBC News.

As part of our conversation, Stephanie was interested in photos of the operation. I promised that somehow I would provide those to her, and you, our faithful listeners and blog readers. Ladies and gentleman, I’m proud to announce I have obtained an EXCLUSIVE photo of the operation. I share it with you now:

          Shocking? Yes. Gory? Perhaps. But, hopefully, one less tree snake on Guam.
