The animals scored another point against the humans at JFK this past Sunday. Reportedly a mouse (eek!) was running rampant around a Delta aircraft waiting to depart for London. Upon being spotted, the captain refused to operate the flight, "fearing the rodent might gnaw through some critical wiring and put the entire aircraft at risk high over the Atlantic."

The 300 passengers were evacuated, and ultimately delayed in their travels for nearly 4 hours. At press time, there was no word on whether or not the mouse was smuggling a Junior's cheesecake.

Animals certainly enjoy flocking to JFK — with turtles, runaway dogs, feral cats and of course those pesky geese all making return appearances in the recent past. Speaking of feral cats, there may be a solution to that mouse problem here...
