Man sets mice on musophobic ex-missus

Swedish woman scared witless by 'cruel revenge'

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

A Swedish man was arrested yesterday on "suspicion of unlawful threats and animal welfare offences", after shoving 19 mice through the letterbox of his musophobic ex-missus's Stockholm flat.

The unnamed 59-year-old decided to "wreak cruel revenge" on his 37-year-old former other half, who woke up yesterday to find the flat full of "scampering murines", as The Local puts it.

She called in cops, who described her condition as "scared out of her wits". The victim is now receiving hospital treatment, while the mice are under the protection of the local police station pending a decision on their future.

The perp has apparently demanded the return of the animals, but Lars Lisberger of Stockholm police said: "He has treated both the mice and his ex-wife badly, so I do not think that he should be given any of them. But we shall have to wait and see what the authorities decide." ®
