US residents flee in terror as insane violent rats take over major cities

CDC warns of 'unusual or aggressive rodent behavior' in search for new food sources

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is warning that rodents are becoming increasingly aggressive as they scavenge for food amid a mass closure of restaurants caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

Ex-marine Thadius Kawolski said, “I served in five world wars and I’ve never been so terrified in my life, these rats don’t mess around “

The CDC said some areas have reported "an increase in rodent activity" and that environmental health and rodent control programs should be prepared for more calls about "unusual or aggressive rodent behavior."

The rats are hardly ‘insane’; they’re fighting to survive.

They may be depressed.

"US residents flee in terror as insane violent rats take over major cities"

Will be an improvement for many cities.

Is it too much to hope that one of them will bite Trump on the arse?

I think VoR will be on your case for not capitalising key words in the headline.

Yes. Sloppy effort.

CDC warns of aggressive cannibal rats facing shortage of garbage to eat

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/25/us-city-lockdowns-rat-aggression-lack-food-waste

Elevated levels of rat aggression has been observed in New York, where there are increased reports of cannibalism and infanticide, and New Orleans, where unusual rat behavior was caught on CCTV.

With all the chemicals they pump into their food or spray on it, the rats may well be suffering withdrawal symptoms.

GyratingTrampoline - 26 May 2020 16:52:28 (#19 of 30)

Even wholesome organic food causes withdrawal symptoms if you stop eating it

Will be an improvement for many cities.

<wonders whether the cities he has in mind share any particular demographic characteristics>
