The skies over Guam were filled with 2,000 parachutes, little bitty parachutes with little bitty mice dangling below. The mice were all dead and each had been pumped full of acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol. This is part of an 8 million dollar plan by the US Air force to poison the brown tree snake. The hope is that the snakes, which are invasive to the area and apparently cause harm to exotic native birds and the island's power grid, will be drawn to the toxic rodents, eat them, and then croak.
