Mouse Grounds International Flight
DAVID GREENE, host:
Good morning. I'm David Greene.
Are you annoyed by rodents? Well, just ask 250 passengers trying to fly from Stockholm to Chicago yesterday. The airline SAS grounded the plane - wait for it - because a security guard spotted a mouse aboard. The Swedish newspaper The Local described an extraordinary mouse hunt involving traps and potentially smoke. As of late yesterday, no success. As passengers rebooked, that little creature roamed free, dreaming of peanut crumbs and well-fortified seat pockets.
