Radioactive Rabbit 2: The Sequel

Local News | Radioactive mouse hunt at Hanford | Seattle Times Newspaper: "After catching a radioactive rabbit just north of Richland, Hanford workers now are on the hunt for a radioactive mouse.

Radioactive mouse droppings have been found in the same area where radioactive rabbit droppings were found earlier this month. About 60 mouse traps have been set, but the two mice caught so far have not been contaminated."

The question foremost on my mind is how did they know the mice droppings were radioactive? Is there a test? (If there is, I wouldn't want to be the one to conduct it.) Or do the droppings, like, glow in the dark?

I'm going with the "glow in the dark" theory.
