There are additional issues... disease and parasite transmission from captive raised mice to the local wild population...

And the concept of a species regulating its own population based on limitations. If he isn't getting enough food then there either isn't enough food locally- and by keeping him half-fed you'd be keeping a predator alive where there is no prey... or he's for whatever reason unable to obtain it on his own, meaning he's weak. Be it an illness he was succesptible to, an injury of some kind or just an ectotherm coming off a tough winter; the breeding population depends on only successful animals being successful. Feeding a dud creates a population of duds.

Chris, if you've got an extra 10 gallon tank you could probably keep it in the shed. That's were it lives anyway. If I was going to keep it alive I would take out of the wild population.

Well I might do that if I see it again, if so I'll get pics too, thanks for the idea Kevin.

i can't think of a way you could offer it food. being wild, its probably not going to take pre-killed. perhaps set up a bird feeder near the shed he lives in. that will attrack birds and mice...then nature will take its course.
