An incident with a mousetrap…

As the scratching in the walls continues, I’ve been trying to set traps to catch the mice or rats that have invaded my home.  First, I tried those glue traps, the ones that stick to the mice and trap them.  All of those traps disappeared somehow – I have no idea where they went,  I assume mice or rats got stuck to them and dragged them off.  After that I bought some real traps, the metal spring kind.  I set a few with peanut butter as bait – mice love peanut butter right?  I set a few around the areas with the loudest scratching noises, and waited – I was assuming I would catch a few mice, confirm the infestation.  

I heard a commotion tonight, in the basement – I thought I heard a ‘snap’ like from a trap, but then I heard what I can only roughly describe as a scream, a horrible shriek of a noise unlike anything I’ve ever heard.  I grabbed the camera, something I’ve been reluctant to do lately, and rushed downstairs.  What I found… I’m not sure what I found, but I fear it’s something much more than mice…
