New York City’s rat problem is getting worse
NY Post ^ | June 12, 2018 | Danielle Furfaro

Rats prefer the neighborhoods of Harlem, the Upper West Side, and Bedford-Stuyvesant — and they really like to party in the summer, a new study shows.

Citywide, the rat population grew about 10 percent from 2016 to 2017 based on complaints filed to 311, the RentHop study released on Tuesday shows.

When you have feral animals living in your city who are too freakin' lazy to find a trash can to deposit their trash, you're gonna have rats. I am not surprised by the increase in the 4 legged kind, as it follows the increase in illegals. I can't tell you how many times I've seen 3rd World illegals just let go of their empty cigarette packaging, drink cup, drink bottle, etc. wherever they happen to be. You should see the shoreline of Willow Lake in Queens. Lots of cellophane floating and other trash left over by the illegals who play soccer in the park and barbecue there on weekends.

Don’t you know the crime rate is going up, up, up, up, up
To live in this town you must be tough, tough, tough, tough, tough!
You got rats on the West Side
Bed bugs uptown
What a mess this town’s in tatters, I’ve been shattered
My brain’s been battered, splattered all over Manhattan

“Ben, you’re always running here and there.
You feel you’re not wanted anywhere.
Mayor Bill wants you to vote for him
So more money he can skim
I’m sure he’ll steal again
And he should be in the pen.”

If your apartment isn’t too high up, just get a BB gun, sit out on your balcony, and hunt over bait. This can be endlessly entertaining. It probably wouldn’t make any difference in the rat population, though.

Not just rats, but demonic rats.

BB guns typically won’t kill a rat. Need to step up to a pellet gun or a very high power BB gun.

When I read this stuff I’m reminded of a show I watched about these guys who shoot rats in Great Britain and make a living off it. They use suppressed air rifles with scopes and night vision and they shoot hundreds a night. The rats never hear it coming so they don’t scatter. It was like shooting fish in a barrel.

These two guys in Great Britain use suppressed air rifles with night vision scopes and they kill hundreds a night. Enough to make a living doing it.

The best way to get rid of the rats in NYC is probably to tax the crap out of them ... especially the millionaire rats ...

I’ve done that very thing, as well as feral pigeons in daylight sans the nv. I have three PCP air rifles, lots of fun, extremely accurate.

I think they should import some alligators to take care of this problem.

It amazed me how they were picking the rats off one by one and the rats just kept walking around like nothing was going on. There was a whole line of rats going across a wall and these guys just kept picking them off and the rats just kept coming.

Must be like it was a the Frozen Chosin, except the rats ain't tryin to kill ya.

And Mayor Bill proclaimed a general amnesty for his furry little brothers, and declares that NYC is now a sanctuary city for these ubiquitous undocumented rodential immigrants...
