A Chinese teenager shocked social media when she retaliated against a mouse that had bitten her finger by catching and biting it on the head. The unusual incident occurred on Dec. 21, 2023, in her university dormitory. Rather than using conventional methods like a mouse trap, the enraged 18-year-old opted to take matters into her own hands, leading to the mouse's demise due to suffocation from her firm grip. However, her vengeful act resulted in injuries to her lips.
The incident drew both amusement and astonishment on mainland social media, with users making light-hearted jokes and some even inviting her to tackle their own mouse problems.
Following the bizarre incident, the student shared on her Douyin account that she received prompt treatment and was fine, though her roommate expressed regret and shame on her behalf. The attending doctor reportedly struggled to document the case due to its unusual nature, as reported by a local news outlet.
Social media users reacted to the incident with humor, labeling the teenager as the "biggest daredevil of 2023" and inviting her to address their rodent issues. Despite the amusement, the student's roommate cautioned against imitating such actions, emphasizing the potential health risks associated with handling rodents.
Highlighting the risks of rodent-related diseases, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention emphasized the importance of preventing rodent infestations by eliminating food sources, water, and items that provide shelter for rodents.
