MOUNT VERNON, NY (WFLA) – A town in New York may need to call in the Pied Piper. Rats have taken up an entire neighborhood, and homeowners are fed up.
It’s tough for folks to sleep knowing just outside their apartment building or house is a community being inundated by rats.
“All last week we couldn’t sleep,” said Patricia Griffin, homeowner
“The cats can’t even mess with them because, maybe … I don’t know … they’re so big! I wouldn’t want to mess with them,” Roger Dorsey said.
The infestation had spread to several blocks. Officials told News 12 they were just recently made aware of the problem. Exterminators spent the weekend trying to address the problem.
