Lennie is afraid George will get angry with him because the mouse is dead due to his affection. 

“Give it here!” said George.
“Aw, leave me have it, George.”
“Give it here!”
Lennie’s closed hand slowly obeyed. George took the mouse and threw it
across the pool to the other side, among the brush. “
