Carpet of Mice Covers Australian Road as Plague Wreaks Havoc on Farms in New South Wales

Hundreds of mice scampered across a road near Walgett, in regional New South Wales, on the night of Friday, January 29.

Danny Petty filmed a video showing mice running in different directions in the farming region between Come By Chance and Pilliga.

Media reported the mouse population had been on the rise across the wheat-farming regions of New South Wales and Queensland following heavy rains. Credit: Danny Petty via Storyful
