Hundreds of mice 'rain down' from machine as Australia faces worst mouse plague in years

Australian journalist Lucy Thackray shared a video, which shows both dead and live mice falling to the ground.

It's literally raining mice in Australia! Yes, it's hard to believe, but the country is going through one of the worst rodent plagues in recent years and a video posted on Tuesday night appears to show some of the rodents 'raining' from the sky.


Australian journalist Lucy Thackray shared a video, which shows both dead and live mice falling to the ground in the Australian state of New South Wales.


“Even if grain’s in silos, mice can get to it. Like Tyler Jones discovered in Tullamore when cleaning out the auger and it started raining mice,” Thackray wrote on Twitter.


“It is disgusting that the government is not contributing to the costs as we live amid a plague ravaging all surfaces of our homes, our clothes and our food.”


Due to this, tonnes of grain cannot be sold because it's been contaminated by mice droppings and truckloads of hay will be burnt because of the damage.


As hundreds of mice 'rain down' from machine in the worst mouse plague in years, the government is looking to deploy normally outlawed high-grade poison to fight it.
