It’s raining mice in Australia!!

…Sort of.

Parts of Australia are having a real rodent issue, and residents are routinely sharing their horror stories of the encounters. On Tuesday night, May 11th, Australian Broadcasting Corporation journalist Lucy Thackray shared a video to Twitter that appears to show some of the rodents “raining” from the sky. It turns out the video actually shows living and dead mice falling to the ground as a New South Wales farmer was cleaning out their silo.

She captioned her post, “Even if grain’s in silos, mice can get to it.  Like Tyler Jones discovered in Tullamore when cleaning out the auger and it started raining mice.”  The mice have been running amok across both inland New South Wales and southern Queensland.
