Mousetraps kill instantly. Death by dehydration is slow and unpleasant. There is a real difference between trapping loose mice and failing to water captive mice.

Mice are dumb so who cares how they died, right? Okay, but just for fun, read with a semi open mind the late great David Foster Wallace’s essay on lobsters: http://www.gourmet.com/magazine/2000s/2004/08/consider_the_lobster?printable=true

Every if you disagree and think he is crazy, you will learn something from reading one of the great non-fiction writers in the last 50 years. (And you might see the world a little differently, who knows?)
