Friend of mine asked me to do some tree work for him. He had a couple trees that had snapped a few months ago in a storm we had here. Lots of broken tops. Got up on a ladder about 8-10 feet off the ground and proceeded to cut it where it had snapped. As I am running the chainsaw at full bore , I see this mouse pop out right near the cracked/splintered area. Apparently it had made a nest 10 feet up this tree.

I ended up finishing my cut and looked inside. Unfortunately for the mouse it now has to find a new home. I've heard of people running into birds/squirrels homes in trees but this was unusual for me.

No mice were harmed making this post.....lol

If it has babies in it then put it in the freezer- it is even better cool
