Rats running roughshod: Cambridge looks to hire a rat liaison

Ben (1972) - Official Trailer (HD)

Wicked Local Cambridge reports Cambridge wants to hire a "rat liaison," not to negotiate terms of surrender with Remy and Ben to serve as a sort of rat czar to deal with growing numbers of rar complaints from residents, only you can't call the person a czar in the People's Republic.

The simple solution to avoiding rats altogether would be to move to the suburbs. I think it’s inevitable you’re going to have rodents to some extent in the city.

Rats rule the world. They aren't going to look at your address and care.

from Medford and down through Cambridge and Somerville, and I can tell you that I see LOTS of rats. A day doesn't go by where I don't see at least one, and more than one is pretty common. They seem much more prevalent than pre-pandemic, when I walke the same route.

I see lots of rabbits, too. My new game to keep myself interested is Rats vs. Rabbits, each side gets a point for a live sighting and a half point for a dead one.

Today was a draw. Rats 1, Rabbits 1.

that means coyotes are next.

And right now Arlington is going crazy over coyotes. They'll be moving eastward soon.

"rat liaison"?
Didn't we already try that with Whitey Bulger?
