Rat Catchers 0-For-Decade


NEW DELHI – New Delhi’s government has a rat catching department that hasn’t caught a single rodent in more than a decade, a newspaper reported Monday.
There are 97 rat catchers on the municipal payroll, all working for the Rat Surveillance Department, a decades-old agency that last saw a lot of action back in 1994, when a plague outbreak killed 56 people in areas of northwest India near the capital, The Hindustan Times newspaper reported.

So what do these “rat catchers” really do?

  1. Maybe instead of calling it the Rat Catcher Surveillance Department they should re-name it the Rat Catching Department. Then instead of sitting round “surveying” the wee varmints they would perhaps squish them instead ….?
