Woman Arrested as Public Threat
D. Drake Gosling, lead reporter
Today at the Three Corners Kroger store an elderly lady was
apprehended while attempting to feed mice to unsuspecting
patrons. The mice, covered in chocolate and crushed nuts,
were presented to shoppers who, unfortunately, were not
aware of their content. When shopper George Cooter took a
bite of his chocolate covered mouse, havoc ensued and the
police were summoned.
"I was seriously grossed out, but I have to admit, that mouse
was pretty tasty!" Mr. Cooter remarked, adding, "She's a sweet
little old lady. Hope she gets a nice jail cell."
Mrs. Eleanor Puce, pictured below, was apprehended and de-
livered to Our Lady of Perpetual Sorrow Catholic Hospital to
undergo psychiatric evaluation. Criminal charges are pending
review. Anyone who has one of the chocolate covered mice,
has eaten a chocolate covered mouse, or suspects they may
have, is advised to contact the county health department to
be evaluated for rabies.
