A carnivorous plant at the Botanical Garden in Lyon, France, ate a mouse. The plant, Nepenthes truncata, is a pitcher plant native to an island in the Philippines. According to Wikipedia (which contradicts the Internet Broadcasting Systems article I link to below), this was the first time that a mammal was trapped in a pitcher of Nepenthes truncata but others in the Nepenthaceae family occasionally nab small mammals. In this case, the mouse remains were discovered once it began to stink.
