Please Don’t Unintentionally Feed the Rats

This one of those things I see from time to time that I wish I could fix. I understand that most people like birds. I am one of them. I also think it’s a good assumption that most of us don’t like rats.

Well, here’s the thing. When someone puts out stale bread, as was done above, for the birds they aren’t feeding the birds. Yes, the bread goes away. No, the birds didn’t eat it and it wasn’t magic. What has actually happened is someone has unintentionally feed the local rat population.

As I’ve said before and will probably say until I die … we as a city will not be able to entirely get the rat problem under control unless we are willing and able to modify our own behavior.

    That irks me, too – especially to think that even if “the birds” ate it, only sparrows, starlings and pigeons lower themselves to such fare.
