Cops Looking for “Rat Retaliation” Suspects

Rodents used as instruments of revenge in a fight over a man.

Ugh. CBS Philly reports: “Philadelphia police are looking for several suspects in what appears to be a case of rat retaliation. Investigators said an ongoing dispute over a man escalated late Wednesday, when a woman in her 20s, her mother and a pack of eight or nine other women went to the victim’s house with a baseball bat and a box containing an unknown number of white rats. The group allegedly bashed in windows and the front door and then dumped the rodents into the home.

Reached for comment, a friend of the rats offered the following:
