Stephen Mckears noticed things kept getting moved around in his outdoor shed. Every night he would intentionally knock over an old bin, which normally contained screws and bolts, and every morning he would come out to the shed only to find everything was neatly put back in the bin. Questioning his sanity, Mckears decided to put a camera out there to solve the mystery.

Mckears, a 72-year-old retired electrician from Severn Beach, South Gloucester, thought he was going crazy. He would always find his messes from the day before tidied up in the shed. This went on for months until he decided to elicit some help from his friend down the road who happened to be a wildlife photographer.
Mckears headed to Rodney Holbrook’s house where he explained what was taking place. Holbrook recommended using a trail camera as it would start recording when there was any movement.
The two set the camera in the shed and waited. The next morning Mckears and Holbrook were shocked to discover the perpetrator was — a mouse. The mouse, which he refers to as “Brexit Mouse,” is seen cleaning up bolts and screws and putting them back into the bin they came out of.
Oddly enough, the mouse was able to lift objects that were almost bigger than he was. When the media discovered he has his own “Stuart Little” in his garage, they came running.
“I’ve been calling him Brexit Mouse because he’s been stockpiling for Brexit,” Mckears explained to one outlet. “The heaviest thing was the plastic attachment at the end of a hosepipe – and the chain of an electric drill.”
Mckears spoke about what was going through his mind before he found out it was a mouse. “I didn’t know what it was at first. The kids were saying it was a ghost. One day I emptied the tub out and spread the contents on the side – and the next day they were all back in again. I thought I was going mad.”
His property value must have skyrocketed in value now that everyone knows the property comes with its own maid.
