Letter: Rats! They are back, even in the dead of winter


In August 2016, I wrote a letter to the editor, noting a problem with rats in Kamloops.

At the time, I sent two pictures of rats with my letter. Sadly, I have to report that, almost three years later, the rats have returned.

The big Victor rat traps used in 2016 stopped springing and I had not seen the rodents until this month.

On the weekend, I was cleaning the snow from a chair outside and came across a frozen rat.

There is zero food source in our backyard, so it’s back to the big Victor rat traps.

Wish me luck and a warning to others to be aware. Spring is coming soon and the rats are already here.
