Of Mice (The Perdido Key Beach Mice, That Is)…

…(The Mouse) and men.

Rodents to Get Beach Property
A new home on Perdido Key could cost thousands of dollars extra, all to accommodate a rodent…
…Right now the mouse has free reign over the Gulf Islands National Seashore, the Perdido Key State Park and Alabama’s Gulf State Park.
But the U-S Fish and Wildlife service thinks the mouse should be able to commute between the parks, without encountering manmade developments…
…The fee would be 1 hundred 98 thousand dollars per acre and would only apply to the footprint of the building.
So… a 3 thousand square foot house would pay about 13 thousand 600 dollars extra.

And (since you knew, just knew there had to be one) the ‘WTF did he just say ??‘ quote:

Keith Wilkins/Neighborhood and Env. Services: “Instead of saying well 198 is too much but 98,000 is fine we can’t do that. We’ve got to say the species needs land acquisition or it doesn’t need land acquisition or it needs less land acquisition but still some.”

Holy crap. I’m moving.

    What if a bunch of (feral) cats suddenly take up residence in the area? Who would they blame for that?
