NY CITY DOOM! A Plague Of Rats Invade TWO Public Schools!
Swarms Of Rats Seen Around 2 Schools On Roosevelt Island
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A plague of rats has been causing trouble for two local schools, and students have been forced to deal with it for months. As CBS2’s Reena Roy reported Monday, the sickening sight has been constant since April. Rodents have been spotted crawling on walls and railings outside an elementary school on Roosevelt Island. The colony seems to be spreading. Just minutes later, they rat after rat was spotted scurrying through the schoolyard at P.S./I.S. 217 Roosevelt Island. “I felt like scared that they’ll like run after me or something,” said student Luca Staracci. “I kind of feel like I’m in the rats’ home,” another student added. The unwanted guests are swarming – crawling up the stairs behind the school cafeteria, going under an entrance gate on Main Street, and even making their way into the play area. “Some people are terrified, and we just don’t go there back there no more,” said student Neriah Umeh-Atueyi. Erka Costa said she kept her child home Monday because of the rats. Source
