Our expert says:
Yes, that was a horrible and despicable act by these young savages. But don't allow yourself to become so deeply affected that you cry all day --- that doesn't help this mouse or any others. There have always been savagely cruel children, and, sadly, probably always will be. IN earlier days they'd do such things in private, and didn't have foolish parents wasting money giving them lavish cell-phones with a needless video capacity to record their filthy behaviour, so maybe more such acts were not discovered.
I hope the parents and the system do wake up over this. Such behaviour among children, specifically cruelty towards animals, is a very reliable pointer towards an Antisocial Personality Disorder, and someone who as they grow up will remain psychopathic and cruel in their behaviour towards others. So these loathsome kids will need to be closely watched for the future.
You can be propud of the very good work you do in rehab. Work with a counsellor, perhaps, to avoid becoming too emotionally involved --- simply because doing so is unpleasant for you and unhelpful to the creatures that need you.
And don't plan to "do the deed" at all. People need you, and the creatures need you. Who else will pray for the mice ?
