Could Swamp Rats Be Headed to Yakima County? Let’s Hope Not
Ew, gross. I had never even heard of such a thing until I saw a news story about it this morning.
Well, I take that back. I have definitely heard of swamp rats, but I thought that was just a metaphor for certain politicians. Now I see that people are not exaggerating when they talk about "swamp creatures", and they're not referring to crocodiles and alligators!
This is insane, the fact that because humans aren't running amok in the parks because of the coronavirus quarantines of 2020, swamp rats are taking over (for the '99s and 2000s)!
The swamp rat infestation situation in Texas has apparently become national news! Click here and you will see at least a dozen stories about these things. It's not their fault that they appear so disgusting to human eyes, and it's not their fault that they are hungry and flock to the local "swamps" to chow down on their "veggies" next to the water. They love to hang out where the duckies hang out (maybe they are play-cousins with the ducks and got invited to the "cookout").
What can we do to make sure swamp rats don't invade Yakima County? All I can picture right now is a bunch of swamp rats invading Randall Park right off of South 48th Ave where the marsh area is! Yikes.
Survey says if we can't "shoo" them away, then we'll have to revert to some more drastic means to get them to buzz off. I don't know what authorities mean by "drastic means", but I'm guessing set up traps or shoot 'em with tranquilizer darts so we can haul those little critters away!
The best thing we can do is to stay living in Yakima County, or at minimum don't move to the southern part of the United States. Or California.
