Smelling ratSunday, July 29, 2007 at 23:10 | Posted in Environment, USA | Leave a comment
DC Metrorail seems to have a rat smell attached. Several dead birds have been detected in and outside a number of stations. The birds have apparently died of rat poison.
The FBI have joined the investigation. Nobody seems to know who has spread the rat poison, according to the Washington Post:
Details are preliminary, but Etter said witnesses reported seeing a man in a black pickup truck spraying material at some of the stations.
Metro spokeswoman Asato said the transit agency was not aware of maintenance work involving rat poison.
Sure smells like rat. Could this be a citizen initiative to fight rats? Or just one hand of the administration not being aware of what another is doing?
