since it was a hospital we couldn't put down mouse traps, The snap there neck kind,
Or use glue traps. We used live traps. baited metal boxes they would crawl in.
Well whenever they would catch one they would call me.
I then had to take it out to a feild behind the hospital and let it go.

I always sang.... Born Free

Born Free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart
