Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says he is worried that a new District of Columbia law that governs how pest control operators must handle rats may result in entire rodent “families” being relocated across the Potomac River into Virginia by D.C. pest control personnel.

I will find it really entertaining if the VA Attorney General seeks an injunction to prevent the DC rats from entering VA.

Just what we need in Virginia, more RATS.

I think I’d take the 4 legged kind over the 2 legged kind.

Robert Heinlein said to never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. I am beginning to wonder if stupidity is an adequate explanation.

Read the damn LAW, people.

It explicitly defines rats and mice as NOT "wildlife".

Sec. 2. Definitions.
For the purposes of this act, the term:
(1) “Animal Care and Control Agency” means the agency established by section 3 of the Animal Control Act of 1979, effective October 18, 1979 (D.C. Law 3-30; D.C. Official Code § 8-1802).
(2) “Department” means the District Department of the Environment.
(3) “Director” means the Director of the District Department of the Environment.
(4) “Licensed wildlife rehabilitator” means a wildlife rehabilitator licensed in any state or the District.
(5) “Wildlife” shall include any free-roaming wild animal, but shall not include:
(A) Domestic animals;
(B) Commensal rodents;
(C) Invertebrates; and
(D) Fish.

Sec 2(5)(B) applies to rats and mice.

Many people don’t realize that bubonic plague didn’t go anywhere...it is still with us. Any place rodent populations get out of control it poses a risk to humans...rabbit populations in the midwest routinely reach a peak and then have a massive die-off due to the plague infecting crowded warrens.

What i’ll say now doesn’t seem to pertain to this story but i could be wrong.
Our politicians are so wrapped up in their special little worlds with their special little constituencies with every last thing they do geared towards being voted back in that they never or at least rarely look at the larger picture. Even when they see it its twisted and turned into more vote getting.
And now with proper time to think it over,of course the story can be explained by this.

Rodents are seed vectors, but liberals are useless.
