“Is it just me, or are there a lot more rats than usual at GA & New Hampshire?”

“Walking through this neighborhood lately is a practice in dodging running rats. It’s like the Tori Amos video…

There are rats everywhere in neighborhoods by Georgia Avenue and New Hampshire and they’re frickin huge, larger than they’ve ever been since I’ve lived there in 8 years!

I suspect a lot of it has to do with us having only 2 trash pickup days per week and limited trash bins on public streets, especially by bus stops. It’s reached an epidemic level now, and they’re not afraid of humans at all. Dogs

I wonder if they’re mostly displaced residents from SoutWest with all the waterfront construction, but the city needs to do something fast about this, it’s embarrassing to invite friends over because they’re literally running everywhere even in the daytime. They’ve also been observed running into holes at the warehouse building next to sweet mango cafe by me on my way home from work, I can’t imagine what’s going on there, but it certainly doesn’t make me hungry.”
