Chicago has found a solution to its rat problem

Chicago has released more than 1,000 feral cats onto the streets, hoping to end its rat problem. The ’Cats at Work’ program came to light after the city was named as the rattiest city for the sixth consecutive year by pest control company Orkin. The cats are all vaccinated against diseases like rabies, and are far safer than allowing rodents to run rampant, the Tree House Humane Society said.

I guess GOOD GOVERNING wasn't a viable solution. Wait for the YT videos of thugs shooting cats....

They should have just done rat terriers and mink teams. They wouldn't have to worry about the cats killing all the birds in the area

To all those asking, the humane society setting this up says that all the cats are neutered. Also they have divided the cats up into separate colonies around the city with a designated caretakers, so there is a chance they will be able to keep up with the vaccinations.

Now if only they could release a thousand rats into the ghettos so they would snitch and bring chicagos almost genocidal murder rates down.

1000 cats now and they'll be a lot more soon. Unless they were all castrated?

Cats are prolific hunters. Rats aren't going to be the only thing depopulated. Hope they don't have any endangered birds in the area.

I feel like this has been attempted before...If memory serves, it didn't go so great then either.

Actually a good idea. All the cats can live at the park and survive from the rats and people feeding them.

If they haven't had the good sense you have the feral cats spayed/neutered before releasing them, they'll release another problem like you wouldn't believe after the cats hunt down the rats and have meanwhile multiplied.

Cats are cruel by nature, they wound, mame and play with their Food. There will be thousands of wounded animals, angry and even more dangerous to the population. It's an experiment. The biggest problem is whenever people try to resolve an animal issue by introducing a predator, things always go badly.

But the rats have always been there and now the feral cats are going to eradicate them and take their birthplace. Oh wait, sorry, that's Palestine and the Israeli armed forces.
