“It is worse than our immigration policies, you can’t break up rat families or racoons and all the rest, and you can’t even kill them. It’s unbelievable.”
Ken Cuccinelli on D.C. Wildlife Protection Act which into effect in 2011.
You see, you are no longer allowed to kill those pests that get into your home. You must capture them humanely. Not only must you capture the one in your home, you then have to go and find the whole family. Mrs. Rat and Jr have to be kept with him. They then have to relocate them. But, since rats are able to find their way back to their locations from about 25 miles, the only way to get rid of them when you are in D.C. is to bring them to Virginia (I guess Maryland, too). So I already have to deal with the rats who occupy congress, I get the real rats from D.C. too.
