Mouse plagues sweeping Australia

In this winter season, the mouse plague extends across south-eastern Australia with reportedly extensive crop damage which compels farmers to re-sow hundreds of hectares of crops in some parts of Australia to ensure the continual production of crops.mouse plague in australia
