Throwing Down the Gauntlet


I went to show a friend some beekeeping equipment and materials this weekend and discovered this!





This is what happens when you don’t clean your homemade leather and cloth gauntlets properly and the local mice get a bit hungry.


I had never seen this before and it’s no wonder the cats were so interested in the box where the gauntlets were stored.

The really annoying thing about this is that they were homemade gauntlets with soft leather riggers gloves that were easy to use and gave great feel and control while providing good protection.

It looks like I will have to make another set. The silver lining in all this is that I will be able to make a few improvements to the next set based on my experience with the first pair.

What’s the craziest thing mice have eaten at your place?
