Winter is cold for mice, too, guys!
That's probably why there have been so many videos cropping up lately of mice in the Montreal metro system.
I personally think the little guys are adorable... but I know not everyone feels that way.
TL;DR Two different videos of mice on the metro in Montreal have been shared with us in the last three days. Check them out below... if mice don't creep you out, that is.
I have friends who have had mice in their apartments, so the fact that I just said they were cute might really offend some people, so I'm sorry.
And honestly, if you hate rodents, you might not want to watch these videos...
But if you can't help but watch a cute little mouse hopping on the metro like Stewart Little's cousin, then scroll down.
The first video shows the little rascals at Frontenac station.
This video comes from user @seth_provencher.
But just as you were thinking, "Phewf, I never take the Green line..."
Here's proof that the Orange line isn't safe from these little guys, either.
This video comes from Instagram user @me.em.insta.
The Gazette has reported that mice populations are often significantly impacted by weather and seasonal changes.
When fall and winter are warmer than usual, mice are given more opportunity to continue breeding, which obviously boosts populations.
Bigger populations going into the winter means higher survival rates, especially if the winter goes through warm spells, which maintain food sources for the four-legged fiends.
This is clearly not a new problem for Montreal. Last year, this video, shared on the Spotted STM Facebook group, shows a group of critters at the Côte-des-Neiges metro station.
There's at least one thing we can all be thankful for: when you have mice, you know you don't have rats.
It's when the mice go away that we should all start to be very, very afraid...
