truly reaping what he sowed

from yahoo news: FORT SUMNER, N.M. - A mouse got its revenge against a homeowner who tried to dispose of it in a pile of burning leaves. The blazing creature ran back to the man's house and set it on fire.

Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner said he caught the mouse inside his house and wanted to get rid of it.

"I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house," Mares said from a motel room Saturday.

Village Fire Chief Juan Chavez said the burning mouse ran to just beneath a window, and the flames spread up from there and throughout the house.

No was hurt inside, but the home and everything in it was destroyed.

Unseasonably dry and windy conditions have charred more than 53,000 acres and destroyed 10 homes in southeastern New Mexico in recent weeks.

"I've seen numerous house fires," village Fire Department Capt. Jim Lyssy said, "but nothing as unique as this one."

FROM ME: talk about sweet revenge. cheers to this mouse for refusing to put up with this kind of treatment! animals are thinking, feeling creatures, and how anyone can so thoughtlessly dispose of a harmless creature in such a painful, pointless way (its not as if the mouse was being cooked for dinner or anything), i will never understand.

this is a true example of karma, and getting what one gives

Karma is exactly the word for it. Maybe next time he'll just let the little mouse go back to nature.
