Please tell me that you did not humanely remove the tick and then relocated it to a safe enviroment... Thomas' class has been working on a medicine unit - we've been all over Lyme's and The Plague. Bugs are gross.

I used a pair of tweezers, grabbed the tick right at the skin, and pulled it straight out. I dropped the tick in rubbing alcohol for an hour or so, took it out and photographed it, then flushed it to the sceptic tank.

For those interested, I used a Nikon D80, three extension tubes, a 105mm macro lens at minimum focus, f57, TTL flash set at +2/3 with off-camera cord, tripod.
