If the mouse is alive and kicking and you are not afraid to get your hands dirty you might try to release it. Make sure you release it far away off your property so it cannot finds its way back to your house when you let it out in the world. Avoid releasing it near inhabited areas.

It is a disease that causes severe breathing problems and can transfer to anyone who is either directly or indirectly exposed to it. If it is dead make sure to dispose of it as soon as possible in the trash. Do not throw it in the same trashcan you keep at home.
