This sounds like a job for weasels. 'Somewhat bloodthirsty' is right up their alley.

Of course, then New York would have the weasels to deal with, but cross that bridge when you come to it, I guess.

And thus Weasel Stomping Day is born.

I just listened to that yesterday for the first time in probably a decade.

Is this a song? Because I don't want to search for that in my YouTube history lmaooooo

Anybody got a link?

Reminds me of the mink man on youtube, minks would probably do a pretty good job too.

Mink man did a walk about with minks and terriers in Washington DC allies. Also stray cats do a good job.

If they want to get rid of the rats they just have to introduce owls. If the owls don't simply die during the winter you can hire owl exterminators.

I was thinking Owls and Hawks at first, but weasels would probably have an easier time navigating the tight spaces in New York. But if they're willing to let the birds build their nests for once, I'm all for hawks and owls.

They wouldn't survive the poison in the rats blood or even the noise of the train.

Some serious old lady who swallowed a fly vibes.

"First she swallowed a weasel to eat the rat, she swallowed an Owl to eat the weasel" repeat ad nauseum.

I know an old lady who swallowed a horse... It was uploaded to a porn site other than Pornhub.

They already have Guiliani.


CitizenCobalt t1_iyt9veb wrote

Excellent. Let’s make an army of mini-Guilianis. They have to be small enough to follow the rats hard-to-reach spots.


Humble-Dragonfly-321 t1_iytqswt wrote

Breed Guiliani with small people? Small people have standards and dignity. I can't see even the noble rodent wanting to mix their DNA with Guiliani.

New York does have a lot of bridges to cross, so they should be good at crossing that one.

Why not just release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the rats.

Can we train and deploy small drones that would kill these rats? 🤔
