Mice Destroy Dikes

Mice have damaged about 450 km of peat dikes in the province of Friesland.  They eat the grassroots so that the grass on the dikes slowly dies.  The same problem exists for farmers who see their pastures damaged and turned into prairies.  750 farmers have incurred damage to the cost of 70 million Euro.  At present, an inventory of all the damage caused by mice is being made.
