Posted May 02, 2018 12:37:03Tomcat fighter planes have been spotted spraying poisonous gas at mice in China, killing at least five, according to Chinese media reports.
Tomcat 2-bomber jets, which carry the toxic anti-mouse gas, have been seen spraying at least 15,000mg of the gas on mice in the northern province of Guizhou, the Xinhua news agency reported.
According to the reports, the jets have been sprayed at night by the jets of a squadron of Tomcat 2 fighter jets.
The air force of Guilin province confirmed the incident to local media, the official Xinhua News Agency said, citing an unnamed source.
The toxic gas was first reported in January by the local media.
Tomcats have been involved in a series of military exercises and joint air and sea exercises in the past two months, China’s state media said.
This year, the Chinese military has announced a series on “cooperative and peaceful cooperation” with neighbouring countries, including the U.S. Tomcat jets have also been seen in international airspace.
The U.K. has also been accused of using Tomcats in international flights, after a Tomcat jet reportedly fired a tear gas grenade towards the aircraft of a European airline in 2015.
