    Rural communities in the Australian state of New South Wales are battling a”plague” of mice that has struck the region.

    Thousands of mice are invading grain silos, barns and homes and infesting the farmers’ bumper grain harvest.

    Mice numbers boomed after unusually heavy summer rains fell across eastern Australia after years of drought, experts explained.

    Videos captured on the Moeris family farm in Gilgandra — a five-hour drive northwest of Sydney — show thousands of mice scurrying from under pipes, through storage columns and over machinery.
