Pattaya begins campaign to wipe out rats on beaches

PATTAYA: -- In an effort to keep the image of Pattaya as a world class tourist destination, Pattaya City is now taking serious on growing rat population.

 

Action from the City came after complaints that a lot rats are seen on the beaches and thus affecting the image of the city’s clean beaches.

 

But there are several alternatives to exterminate the rats – in a humane way or brutal choice.

 

After taking into consideration of the brutal alternative..the use of poisons, local authorities feared their carcasses could pose disgusting smells as they could go everywhere before dying and thus scare away tourists.

 

They decide to use non-lethal wire cages instead.

"They decided to use non-lethal wire cages instead" I can see a profitable market somewhere opening up for rat meat :whistling:

No Sir, that is not a mis spelling of Paté, it really is Raté

And to follow may I suggest our unique Ratatouille.

The rats are doing a big favour for Pattaya City and the beaches by helping clean up the garbage and filth that is left there by humans. Instead of getting rid of the rats they should be importing more of them.

pattaya beach is where all the businesses on the other side of the road, many of them restaurants,  dump their rubbish, and usually its not dumped in bins but if it is they arent closed. its a free feast for the rats every day. the population would drop drastically if they would only stop feeding them

 

but its good they arent poisoning them, as well as stinking the beach out it also kills the owls and cats that would naturally help keep the rat population down

Going to my mates bar in Soi Diana whenever you go to the toilet there is always a rat or two running across the car park. I think they are fighting a losing game with this plan.

If they stopped feeding the rats with all the delicious  rubbish they leave on the beach for feeding the rats if there was nothing for them to eat they would soon all head to second road for food to eat.

they would have more chance of teaching all the tourist police english (not much chance of that either) best chance is to remove their food source. wonder what they do with them once they catch them, relocate them?
