 Mice for savee

I have found through trial and error the easiest way to kill mice quickly and humanely is to dislocate their cervical vertebra. To do this hold the mouse on a towel by its tail, with your other hand put a pencil over its neck, and give the tail a quick tug. You will hear the vertebra snap. They die instantly.

I tried the C02 method but was not satisfied as it took too long for them to die.
