wild mouse - what to do

i caught 2 mice in a trap i put in my basement, right now i have them both in a small aquarium.. i feel bad keeping them in there since they are wild but i don't know what to do? Its very cold here. 24 degrees fahrenheit, -4 celsius and gets even colder sometimes..

if i release them somewhere outside they will just die from the cold, no?

please help

thanks in advance

I think they would be ok outside, i mean all the other mice in the wild survive the winter, dont they? There prolly pretty stressed in the cage. Is there any warmer days in the forecast for this week?

I would not keep them locked up in a cage,afterall they are wild animals.And I am sure they are stressed out being cooped up.Not to mention wild mice can carry disease.I would let them go somewhere.They will find another warm place to go.Maybe you could release them near a barn or someplace?

Well there is an abandoned unheated building i could let them in, i would have done it already but the 2 that i caught are pretty small, like practically babies.. not pink they have their fur and eyes are open..
