BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
A Baton Rouge woman is upset because she says rats are
invading her home and yard. Jenny Harbourt moved into her home on Seyburn Drive
in Baton Rouge, LA about five years ago. Three months ago she began
noticing rats in her back yard.
Harbourt complained to the city parish after the rodents
began to show up. "They are burrowing," says Harbourt. "They are digging holes
all over the place they have them underneath my shed, and all over my yard."
Harbourts neighbor has been visited by animal control in the
past over the rats. They are considered pets because they are Norwegian
Domestic rats. According to Harbourt, the rats have gone feral, meaning they
have bred with regular rats to create a hybrid.
The rats can have a new litter every 21 days and up to 10
rats per litter.
The problem has gotten out of hand says Harbourt. "Usually
at dusk and dawn there the most active," says Harbourt. "They will be running
around the outside of the house peeking out of the neighbors' house. They roam
around; I guess they are just foraging for food."
Hilton Cole with East Baton Rouge animal control says he
will have a supervisor go to the house to investigate. He says his people have
been out there in the past and the neighbor has been very cooperative. She was
not home when we visited and we saw no rats.
