"Let Us Gaze At This Massive Rat Cluster And Draw Sweeping Conclusions About The Current State Of NYC"

I believe a large cluster of rats is called a "political convention."

"Suppose there was no COVID or disruption to trash, would we still see rats through the fence? Yes," Corrigan told us. "Would we see those numbers? I don't know."

that turned out to be a very disappointing quote

Full disclosure, I literally function on garbage knowledge, but this is not surprising at all.

It was somewhere around 15 years ago that I had read that the ratio of rats to humans in NYC was 3.2 to 1. I have zero references to prove that with, but I think I read it in the Times back then (More Google-ier feel free to track down stat). It could have been 20 years, but any ways, you chum the waters, you get sharks.

Good for the rats.

What if the rats were in some sort of enclosure. Like, say, a cage of some sort?

Funny story as it relates to rats.

See...  We don't really have rats out here in the suburbs.  It's just not something you commonly see.  So it's wild to see one at all.

We were down in Philly walking toward the convention center for the car show (this was back when those things were allowed).  A medium sized animal pounced onto the sidewalk, looked around for a second, then scattered across the street into another building.  My wife was like, "What in the F was that thing?!"  "Honey, that was a Philadelphia Chipmunk."

At least it wasn't a Rat King.

Those things gross me out because I think it must hurt the wee beasties.
