And i have to say it wasn't near as bad as i thought it would be. in fact, it really wasn't bad at all. I put the pinkie in the corner of a plastic bag then twisted the bag shut. I stood there for a minute feeling unsure of what i was about to do, but then i just took a deep breath and gave the bag a good hard swing into the wall. I might have swung too hard, cause the rat was kinda bloody, which made me feel bad, but then i realized just how quick of a death that was and i felt better. just wanted to share with anyone who might be apprehensive about whacking a mouse/rat that it isn't bad and the pinkie really did die instantly.

p.s-- i know there has been a lot of debate lately about how to kill rodents. If you don't agree with whacking please don't jump down my throat, i'm just sharing my experience
