Starving rats are reportedly turning into cannibals and attacking one other as their restaurant food supply disappears

tporter@businessinsider.com (Tom Porter), Business Insider • May 24, 2020

  • The CDC has warned that rats are growing increasingly aggressive amid the coronavirus epidemic, and advised on what people can do to stop infestations in their neighborhoods. 
  • The rodents usually feed on rubbish in restaurant bins, but with many outlets closed or only offering takeout they are empty.
  • Videos have been posted on social media of rats swarming deserted streets in New Orleans and New York streets.
  • Pest control officials say that some rats are resorting to cannibalism and infanticide to survive.

See? New Yorkers were really their own problem.

I don't know that people denied this other than the people who were the problem.

I love NYC but part of my love for NYC is that I keep it real when talking about it, and New Yorkers are some of the most disgusting people in a rich-world country.

This is setting the stage for hantavirus scares/preparation (however you wish to look at it)....

It's not the cannibalization I'm worried about - it's the potential migration.

I still don’t get why this city puts trash bags on the street or easily tipped over cans instead of taking up ~3 or 4 spaces on each block to park a dumpster for neighborhood trash that’s picked up by dumpster trucks.

Problem is we’re disgusting by choice.

Wow...but what is this doing in the Subway section?

Do rats not exist in the subways?
