New York: In New York, America, a work came out for the prevention of rats. If you’re “somewhat bloodthirsty” and willing to consider a “mass cull” of rats, you might be the perfect candidate to be New York’s newest Rat Jar. The administration of New York City Mayor Eric Adams posted a job opening Wednesday for a director of rodent mitigation, with salaries between $120,000 and $170,000 a year.

This position requires a bachelor’s degree in urban planning, project management or government experience, and proficiency with spreadsheets. But above all, the successful candidate must have the determination and the instinct to exterminate the rat population which is the true enemy of New York.

Charles Dickens complained about rats
Rats are one of the unsavory aspects of life in America’s largest metropolis, often found running between subway tracks and sniffing around trash bags. Legend has it that there are almost as many rats as humans. It is said that there are about ninety lakh rats in the city. However, a local statistician called that figure a lie. The famous English novelist Charles Dickens complained about rodents (rodents/rats) when he visited New York in 1842.

The rat epidemic continues in New York
Let us tell you that city officials have spent millions of dollars trying to reduce the rat population over the years, but so far it has gone unchecked. During a presentation in 2019, Adams, then Brooklyn borough president, unveiled a machine that immersed rats in a pool of an alcohol-based liquid. This machine is called ‘Rodent Jar’. Although the rat epidemic in New York continues. According to local reports, between January and September this year, more than 21,500 rat sightings were reported to the city’s hotline, compared to around 18,000 in the same period last year.
