Description:Translation (by Maran Seng Pan) Once upon a time, in a village, there lived witch families who had another form of mouse. Every day they filled up the pig trough with rice water and put it in the attic. At night the mice came and drunk it. Even humans could hear they slurped. Anybody from the village who quarreled with them always died. Those witches killed many villagers and also made troubles. Even though the villagers knew who did it, no one had enough courage to reveal it. So, they called in a shaman. And they killed pigs and offered as a sacrifice to the spirits. That time the mouse witches also came and drunk the pig blood. The mouse witches were the souls of witches transformed into mice. When the shaman killed and sacrificed the animals, the chain of mouse witches came out and drunk the blood. The shaman struck one of the mice witches at the front to test whether it was a real witch or not. Then an old man from a family cried in pain. After a while, he calmed down. The villagers found out the mouse witch families because the number of mice appeared was the same as the number of family members. The more family members they had the more mice appeared. So, the villagers boiled the water in a big pot. When the mice came out, they clipped one by one with coal tongs and put them into the boiling water. In this way, the villagers eradicated the mouse witches. From that time on, the mouse witches disappeared from that village and no one was bewitched anymore. At last, the villagers lived happily ever after.
