This is a little like bringing coal to Newcastle, but a reader tells us that yesterday evening, two men released an entire colony of white mice in the middle of the Buena Park Circle playlot. The mice are apparently quite tame and were approaching the children and congregating on the rocks.
So... this creates an unsanitary situation for the kids who play there. It has the potential to create many more generations of mice who call Buena Park Circle home. And if the people who did it thought they were being great "humanitarians," well, guess what, guys, tame white mice don't have great outdoors skills.
As our reader says, "What in the heck were these guys doing with all those white mice? And why on earth would the release them in a playlot full of children?" If anyone saw anything and can help identify the people who dumped them, please post here. The police, Park District and Board of Health have been contacted.
