Default Shocking News.. Absolutley Shocking!

Man's Homemade Mole Killer Kills Him Instead

Reuters, BERLIN (Jan. 11)

A German retiree who wired up a high-voltage cable to try to wipe out the moles digging up his garden killed himself instead, police said Thursday.

Uwe Werner, police spokesman in Stralsund north of Berlin, said the 63-year-old retired construction foreman was found dead in the garden of his weekend house in Zingst next to a 380-volt cable and metal spikes rammed into the ground.

"The moles survived," Werner said, noting the voltage was enough to run a cement mixer or heavy-duty power saw. "It was in any event an unorthodox method to try to get rid of moles."

Darwinism at it's finest

I made one years ago for crawlers and it works great.
You're right though.
Why I did I have no clue but once knelt down to grab a crawler too close to the rod and got this tingling, DUH!
