The United States government rained mice down upon the U.S. possession of Guam on Sunday. Mice were airdropped in an effort to eradicate the Brown Snake from the island paradise. Since the 1950’s, Andersen Air Force Base has been plagued by the snake. There are millions of dollars in damage to the islands electrical infrastructure, and devastating the islands native bird species. The latest scheme to control the snake, involves the airdrop of 2,000 mice laced with the pain killer Tylenol. Scientists have found the snake is susceptible to the drug acetaminophen.
