In order to help eradicate the invasive brown tree snake population, authorities will begin to drop toxic mice on the island of Guam . The snakes have almost eliminated the native birds on the island .

Hawaii is looking at this also

The mice which are dead will be attached to streamers or some such gizmo to keep the mice in the trees so the snakes can get to them.

Interesting. I hope they have thought this through.

Better to drop live Repugnicans. No need to add poison, and hearing the creams would be awesome! laugh

Yeah but then you need a HazMat team to go in an clean up afterwards ! laugh
And the reclamation costs would be enormous and as they claim- "We're broke !" whistle

I'm not a biologist... but I don't think snakes will eat other snakes...?
