In Oregon, land of liberals, a human risks his life to save a plague-carrying mouse!
An unnamed man in his 50's is suffering life-threatening plague after trying to "rescue" a mouse from the mouth of a feral cat. This is taking concern for others less capable than oneself to the farthest extent imaginable.
The man is in critical condition, but is expected to survive with antibiotic treatment. But what would move someone to want to save a mouse from a feral cat? Cats go after mice; nature has made them that way. The cat has to eat; the mouse is his food.
Most people are glad to let cats take care of the mice. Oh, but do-gooders and world-savers can't stand to see any suffering taking place anywhere. Even for a mouse. Well, I hope this guy learned his lesson.
