This. Knowing that hawks eat mice is once thing. Actually seeing it happen is a lot different. I know that the hamburger I made last night was from a cow, but I sure as hell don't want to WATCH it being killed and ground up. I don't want to see the cow i'm eating. It'll make me sad. It's the same thing, in theory. Something is food for something else, but you don't want to see it. Especially when its something as cute as a mouse. :) And to whoever mentioned cats, how often do you WATCH your cat kill a mouse? You might clean up the innards, but that's the 'hamburger' case again. It's not a mouse anymore. It's just bits. If you cat leaves whole dead mice around for you that aren't mutilated, that's a lot sadder. Or it makes me sad, anyways, when i get to see how cute it was when it was alive. I can easily see how two little kids could be upset by this.
If people would expose their kids to real nature instead of letting them sit in front of tv all day, this wouldn't happen.
