A mouse got into my boat this winter and chewed the lead on a bottom bouncer. Any ideas why a mouse would eat lead?

Same reason squirrels love to chew lead roof boots.

I remember on a drop hunt in Alaska seeing how a bear had eaten all the foam out of a Coleman canoe. Lead seems a mystery but we never know.

For some reason, sometimes it's just very compelling to eat something that doesn't taste good. wink

My son had a truck bed insert stored in his garage. Mice got in and chewed a box of duck shells open and then chewed the shells open and spilled all the shot out.

Like wiring, why they chew wiring I'll never know.


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

People made a drink out of lead powder slurry in midevil before we knew it was toxic . Supposedly they drank it because it tasted sweet .
