Australians are starving and seriously ill due to the invasion of rodents

Grain grower Colin Tink made a giant mousetrap from an old shipping container and caught 7,000 rodents on the first night! But all is in vain. Grain and hay not eaten by small creatures are spoiled, since they are soaked in mouse excrement. The cattle refuses to eat this stinking mixture. Greg Younghusband burned down his house and all his rich crops to get rid of the mice and their smell. Doctors record a twofold increase in the incidence of leptospirosis, which causes meningitis, renal failure, bleeding and respiratory complications.

The authorities are trying to fight rodents with chemicals. But scientists warn that the poison will kill eagles, owls, snakes and monitor lizards that feed on mice. Now all the hope of the Australians is in the cold. But if the winter is mild, then in September the continent will face an even more numerous invasion of mice.
