Rats invade Swift Current

One person is bitten "in their own bed"

The rats have come, and the good residents of Swift Current, Sask., want answers, reports the StarPhoenix. “In the beginning, it was funny or a novelty, but at this point people are getting very angry that the city hasn’t shown more leadership,” said local resident Don Robinson. “We have had reports of rat bitings. We had a report of a person bit by a rat in their own bed.” Some believe the rats came when a number of derelict building were demolished.
