Yesterday, we talked about the heroic bomb-sniffing rats of Cambodia and how rats are being used as other kinds of service animals. We also talked about how some of these unconventional service animals are struggling with acceptance because some people find them to be alarming.
Today we feature a human criminal who is adding to that fear by robbing a store dressed as a mouse.
Canadian police released this video of a man robbing a shop dressed as a giant mouse. You can see details in this Sky News article. Not only is this man doing harm to society, he is harming the image of innocent animals and continuing to drive the wedge deeper between people and rodents of all kind.
If you must disguise yourself for a robbery, wear the mask of a politician. At least there the mistrust will do us good.
