On the Age Old Art of Mousetrapping (And Videoing It!)

For the last couple months there have been a lot of mice moving into my house. I would occasionally see one run up the staircase or disappear into a hole in the bathroom wall. I could also hear them chewing in the walls at night, which could be kind of unnerving. I was trying to just ignore them, but last week, they climbed up onto my sink and pooped all over my toothbrush. I decided it was time to take action. I set out just one mouse trap. Within a few minutes it had caught a mouse. I set it again, and caught another, and again, and caught a third. Now, I have always kind of wondered what it actually looks like when this happens, and now, being reasonably assured that it would happen, I set up a camera. Here is the result:
