Mouse with nose stuck in Ketch-All live trap

Trevor Cuthill took these photos of a field mouse that had been caught in a Ketch-All trap, that then got its nose stuck in one of the ventilation holes. This was highly unusual. The mouse apparently poked its nose too hard through a hole, and got it stuck.  Trevor pried one of the vent holes open to free the mouse, as its nose was swollen. He then released it, but it was very weak and injured, and he doesn’t think it survived. In any case, here are the images.
