No wonder..........

Man's Homemade Mole Killer Kills Him Instead
Reuters
BERLIN (Jan. 11) - A German retiree (BMW Motorrad) 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 transmission engineer/designer for BMW Motorrad 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."

You'd think an engineer would know better. Reminds me a bit of caddy shack. That sucks though. RIP.

Now you see me, now you don't
