Someone on FB posted this earlier. I literally cried with laughter, as did DD. DS13 did not approve and thought it was cruel.

Disclaimer - I truly hope it's not cruel, but they did this to themselves, and, well, it's bloody funny.

I'm not sure that I think it's cruel, but I don't think it's funny either. Meh.

Really? Not even a small titter?
Oh, I think you do need to be on FB to see it, sorry.

They did run fast!

Oh my goodness. That is HILARIOUS! Makes me think of that cartoon movie about a hero dog with the fat hamster??? Oh yeah, BOLT!! Like the mice are running a commentary while they, well, run!! Bahahahaha!
Poor little buggers tho, I would've liked to have seen if they were ok once they stopped.
Hopefully their owners slowed the contraption down so they couldn't spin sooooo fast.

I've had many various rodent pets in my time and without fail they seem to like to test the limits of their toys. Hopefully these ones learned, as mine did, that it doesn't bode well to run TOO fast on things, or build towers TOO tall to leap off.
THey're smart li'l critters and do learn things pretty quickly.

If someone has caused it, then yeah I think it's cruel.

Sorry, I'm not smiling. Feeling sorry for them, so it's cruel to me.

Rodents are smart. They knew what they were doing. (unless there was vodka in the water).
Lighten the **** up.

Well it's after midnight here, so my reasoning skills may be a little fuzzy, but I laughed. A lot.
Mind you, I was raised with a pretty black sense of humour.

They know how to stop it. They know how to get off and on it.
I do think, perhaps, after seeing this, that the owners should maybe slow down the wheel a tad, but they really did look like they were enjoying it.
I took my DD on her first rollercoaster recently - a very tall, wooden, rattly scary thing. I was sh*t scared, she was sh*t scared, but we got off the thing smiling going WHAT A RIDE!!!!!!!

About half way through, when one's getting a ride while the other was running... Reminded me of riding roundabouts with my sister as a kid, with run hanging on yelling at the other to spin it faster and faster...
To my mind, they're not 'trapped' in the toy. They can stop, start and get off it whenever they like.

Nah, man getting hit by football wasn't funny at all.

I am a lover of animals..especially mice and I laughed my a$$ off.
Its their toy and they looked like they enjoyed it. Great work out for them.

It seems I am in the minority that thinks it's cruel.
Posted 27 November 2012 - 12:39 AM
After having rodents I think they enjoy it. Its far more entertaining and happy for them then sitting in a cage all day.
I'm going for funny.
