Thorne Sherman is the captain of a small supply boat sent to bring provisions to a lab on an isolated island. When he arrives, inclement weather prevents the offloading of provisions, and he finds the resident scientists nervously awaiting him with guns. Much Administrivia/{{Natter}} and beating around the bush ensues, until finally the truth comes out: The scientists have been performing experiments on overpopulation by genetically engineering shrews which grow to the size of sheep dogs, eat incessantly and breed profusely. These giant shrews have escaped and are overrunning the island, stripping it of food until the monsters must turn on the humans, trapping them in the small house/lab.

** Also, one of the scientists, when fatally bitten by a shrew, calmly records the progression of symptoms right up to the instant of his death, rather than say anything to all the people in the room with him.

* MadScientist: Remarkably {{Averted}}. Dr. Craigis may have accidentally created a herd of giant shrews as a side-effect of his experiments, but he at least took care from the beginning that nothing that he did could endanger the wider world and he gives a reasonable justification for everything he does.
