Watch: 427-Year-Old Mouse Trap Design in Action

Mice can be real pests, and fooling them unto death can be oddly satisfying. Some mice are too small to even trip a traditional mouse trap, so things like this can be extremely useful for getting rid of the pesky little rascals, which have a terrible tendency to get into your stuff — including prepping supplies.

This old design is called Mascall’s Mill, and consists of some paddles over a bucket of water.

After a test with a pet mouse, he puts the design to work in a barn. The first comer is a huge rat, far too large for the trap — but it got caught anyhow. And soon enough, along come some mice, two of which got caught.

Nice!
