    Toss the rats some chinese toys, they chew on them and die. Send in the haz mat team to get the dead rats and chinese toys, problem solved.

    Don't kill rats = animal cruelty - Do kill rats = What? Good Grief! Where these her pets or something?

    Yeah, I understand the nuisance charge, but not the cruelty to animals charge! But, I know that you can get more done in this state for abuse/neglect of animals than you can for abuse/neglect of people---because people threaten to sue and that's all it seems to take to get authorities to back off of a lot of abuse/neglect cases. Especially, if the family happens to be connected!

    I can understand the need for dogs to be in a sanitary home. But while placing charges against the woman for animal abuse did the authorities happen to notice she also had children that had lived in the home? What's wrong with our society?
