The Unluckiest Mouse

mousetrapWhat are the odds that a little mouse in a Readings Museum would fall for a 155 old mousetrap. Seems the poor wee thing did. A curator found the dead rodent after it had waltzed into the “unbaited” display trap and got kaboomed. To add insult to injury death, the 1861 device had printed text on it declaring it would “last a lifetime”.
