Dr. Bobby Corrigan, a rodent scientist in the urban area, said he has seen a huge change in the behavior of rodents in his apartment: “You can’t believe what is happening outside the apartment. It’s crazy. I heard rats on the street. Screaming,” Corrigan told Gothamist.

He said friends have been calling him to warn mice. He described a phone call saying: “I’m watching mice, I have never seen them play in the park, they are wrestling, they look happy while playing.” I said, believe me, they didn’t participate in the game, soon Someone will be killed and eaten! “

Corrigan said: “Any mammal will soon behave abnormally if it takes food away.”
