I'm talking about the mice from NIMH that got blown down the air vent tunnel. My friend says the mice got chopped up by the fan blades. But I thought that couldn't happen because fans usually have a covering on them to prevent debris from falling in. But does it cover both sides?
Even if they didn't get chopped up by the fan, would they have starved to death down there? The wind prevented them from going down the correct tunnel where there was only one exit. Maybe once the fan stopped they could crawl back up the tunnel. But if it turned on and off constantly, then they would make their way up each time, only to be blown back down again and again.
Maybe they were forced to turn back. But there's no way they would want to get back in their cages.
The rats left an opening for the mice in case they got out. Suppose the scientist somehow saw the holes, put two and two together and found the mice in the tunnel.
Couldn't the rats have made more of an effort to save the mice? If each mouse had grabbed one rat, they could have all crawled up safely. If they hadn't save Johnathan in the first place, no one would have been small enough to slip through and open the lock in the first place.
