The 'mouse keeping' mouse - was it transgenic?
Many people saw the clip on TV dubbed 'mouse keeping'by some outlets.


It's kind of entertaining and this behavior is typical of rodents. In the US rodents that live in abandoned mines are called 'pack rats'.
10 years ago mice with human dna were already being developed in the UK.
So how many of those modified mice ended-up in people's sheds doing some house work?

Nothing transgenic for me, it's typical anthropomorphism, the strong tendency for human to associate a non-human animal behaviour to a human one and think they have our level of sentience.
