Skip to comments.NYC: WORST RAT INFESTATION IN THE WORLD
Posted on 01/25/2014 7:03:45 AM PST by ilovesarah2012
The popular and informational television station Animal Planet has named New York City the worst city for rats in the world. In this case, they are not referring to politicians. We are talking about Rattus norvegicus, otherwise known as the "brown rat." Brown rats are a scourge to rural and urban areas and are one of the most serious pests on the planet, carrying diseases and multiplying at exponential speed. One pair of rats can multiply up to 200 times in just one year. They are adept at climbing, swimming, and yes, working their way thru a serpentine of sewer pipes and exiting your toilet bowl. It is estimated that NYC has twice as many rats as they do humans. If you run the math, that would total about 16 million rats. But no worries, the New York's Health Department provides an interactive map for residents to view rat infestations on RIP (Rat Informational Portal). The series of maps mark the blocks with the worst infestations, coloring the most densely infested areas with red. As a result, one can look at raw data and investigate any neighborhood or building to see to what extent any particular venue is infested. Clicking on an area of the map will supply inspection dates, actions, and results. Moreover, one can retrieve rat history, going back to 2009, of any address within New Yorks five boroughs.

No kidding. They’ve gotten so bad that they’re ordering conservatives to leave.
I thought that one would go to D.C :p
Rattus novegicus = DEMONRATS
Rattus norvegicus = DEMONRATS
I hear the rodent problem is bad too.
I understand the NYC rats are second to only Chicago rats in voter registration.
The jokes just write themselves.
“...no worries, the New York’s Health Department provides an interactive map for residents to view rat infestations on RIP (Rat Informational Portal).”
this is of course completley unfair, giving humans the advantage and leaving the poor little ratses to fend for themselves.
I trust The Other Great Leader Mayor De Blah Blah Blahsio..will address this shortly!!....
It’s a matter of professional courtesy.
Walking past the piles of trash and garbage put out on the sidewalks in Manhattan at night, they sometimes look like they are alive and moving there are so many rats.
I was going to suggest taxing the rats at a very high rate. That would drive them out.
Now, now, the article is about the rats in NYC, not the ‘rats. (^_^)
But they all vote democrat....
The problem is with the people who are supposed to stand up to the rats.
If no one cares and rats are just accepted, rats will prosper.
Newark NJ has rats like no others; they casually hop around in broad daylight.
Also known as the Siberian hamster.
Yeah, even the dead ones.
And they’re rooting out the four legged vermin!!!
