Earlier this year, I had this story up on rat catchers. So what has happened to these intrepid rat killers? Well, DNA newspaper has the story (I am not sure if they themselves realize it is a follow up. Old media sadly cannot hyperlink to the past.) on how rat killers are finding the going tough because of noise. Apparently they have to kill 30 rats a night at a minimum and deliver the carcasses as proof. Talk about cats dragging in their kill.
The “city that never sleeps” makes noise at all times of day and night. And especially during the festival season around Diwali it must be a frustrating period for rats and the rat killers.
