Fact of the Day: Mouse Island

In 2012, an Alaskan island known as Rat Island was free of their centuries-old rat population. As such they changed the island's name to Hawadax Island.

  4. Crazy. I think they should have kept the name of Rat Island, just to be ironic. I mean, seriously, how can you pass on that kind of history? (Unless you're trying to encourage people moving in...which okay, I get.)

  10. I read rats weren't native to this island but were brought there by white fishermen.
