The mice that invaded my trailer last summer must have been genetically altered too because they showed no fear of my cats' scent which is all over that trailer! Their toys and brushes we purchased to keep in the trailer were in there along with their fur that could not be vacuumed up in the carpet and couch, but the mice still chose to breed and make such a mess in there :evil:!!

Not sure why they would want remove an animal's fear of their natural enemy. As much as people don't like mice, it seems cruel to me.

Cochroaches and bugs on the other hand.. :yuck:

Dumbest idea I ever heard. What a waste of time and money.

Cancer not likely to be cured. They are too addicted to the profit of the health care industry.

They are probably doing research on the brain area that controls fear, as you know there are many humans that have extreme phobias that control their lives and this research may lead to a cure for that:shrug:
