Mouse gets caught in 155-year-old trap in Reading museum

155-year-old trap catches mouse A 155-year-old Victorian mouse trap on display at a museum sprung into action again to claim its latest victim.
Ollie Douglas, assistant curator at the Museum of English Rural Life, was baffled when he discovered the dead mouse in the trap, which was in a cabinet.
He said the rodent could have entered the trap to make a nest, but got stuck inside.
The trap is one of hundreds kept at the museum.
Mr Douglas said: "We think that the mouse chewed at the label and got interested in chewing at the string attached to the label."
