I mentioned to someone the other day that I can clean and process deer, pigs, poultry and other game....but when it comes to picking up a mouse, (dead or alive)... I can't do it.
If I catch one in a trap, I use pliers to pick it up and usually throw the whole thing away, trap and all.
The second thing I have a problem touching is a water dog.. or salamander. When using them for fish bait....again, I reach for my pliers.
I've apparently come across "icky" thing number three.
The tomato horn worm.........
I use my heavy duty work gloves to pick them from the plants, place them in a bucket and feed them to the chickens.
