Rats of New York, they’re coming for you

warning rodent bait New York City rats

Spotted this on a public street in New York City, where they had barricaded off a section of the sidewalk nearest the buildings, covered it with some sort of black tarp, then plastered these warning signs every so many feet.

Had to chuckle since the previous night I ran into a street rat, quite literally. It happened when I was walking on a different street and felt a rat scurry across my foot. In a very weird way, that made me feel slightly pleased, like I had a genuine NYC experience, though once is enough for me, thanks (also should mention that it was a small rat, not one of those epic dog-sized ones, so I did not lose my mind and freak out about it).

Bonus points for the random capitalization of “Treated”.
