Strange rats invade Kyrgyz region
BISHKEK. Sept 20 (Interfax) - An unusual breed of rats is inflicting damage on Kyrgyzstan's Dzhalal-Abad region.
The rats "are killing numerous farm birds, are damaging grape and corn crops, and have destroyed 14 hectares of grain in one of the districts. These
rats can climb trees and are destroying apples, pears and other fruit. The rat invasion may also give rise to different epidemics," parliament member
Dooronbek Sadyrbayev told Interfax.
The rats frequently attack people and young children are especially vulnerable.
Thats insane. When I was younger we used to hunt rats with spears. The rifle was good at night, however you really could only take one shot as the
police came almost every single time we fired. But they are climbing trees and stuff? That would be like a carnival for me! Although I dont like
to kill anything, and havent killed a rat in years, if they were out of control like that here I would be out killing them all day!
