LA ‘Overrun By Rats’ And Should Declare ‘Public Health Emergency’

Los Angeles is experiencing a rapid takeover of rodents, according to a new study. The spike in rats, which is linked to growing homelessness throughout the city, may cause economic turmoil for a city already experiencing hardships to its middle class.

The Reform California released the report which links the increase in rodents to upticks in once rare illnesses. For example, a Los Angeles police officer recently came down with typhoid fever.

“California is being overrun by rodents,” said Carl DeMaio, chairman of Reform California, said in the study. “Without immediate emergency action by state and local government, we face significant economic costs and risk a public health crisis.”
