So my momma mouse that ate all her babies (except for one) was dead when I got home from work. I got the pup out of the cage and cleaned the cage out. Hes in a little plastic critter tote. I tried to put him in the tank with my other set of female that im letting mature, they instantly tried to kill him. I held him in my hand to comfort him after they tried to attack him and he moved his head accros my hand and left a faint trail of what seemed like bloody saliva. The mouse that was giving him crap only ipt him on the butt and he scattered away so Im 99% sure the blood isnt from that. When I got him out of his mommas tank I saw what seemedlike blood on his genital area aswell. Could this be some sickness or malnutrion from momma dying. What do I do with him?

He is going to die. Euthanize him. If he doesn't have hair, freezing is the quickest method. If he has hair and is breathing, you can use this method: http://www.alysion.org/euthanasia/
