She actually seems WAY healthier and more energetic than any mouse I've ever seen at a pet store. IMO, the pet store ones are always lethargic (In the store, at least) but she's not. She just scurries around her cage, gathering up pieces of food and whatnot. I hope she has babies, even if they aren't social!! :

I grew up in a farmhouse, I've had pet mice and rats. My dad had a wild mouse he used to leave cornflakes out for. We had cats and dogs to keep the wild beasties hidden (they were terrible mousers). We've always relocated them when they were caught out in the open. We also relocated a bat from the living room ceiling fan to outside. lol

However, I had a dog who was "rat control", I don't mind the rats climbing in the feed bins, or even living in the basement, but once they attack my livestock (we'd lose chicks/ducklings all the time), or leave massive tunnels for me to twist my ankle in through the stall floors, then we have an issue.

this has happened to me countless times, and i am deifnetely not as strong as you are when it comes to wounded animals. I cant even watch Humane Society commercials, yet again i dont think anyone can.

Im so sorry you had to witness such a horrible thing. I feel like crying :(
