  Of Rats and Roaches
Posted on Thursday, May 29, 2008 @ 14:34:18 EST by admin

Lake Worth

Of Rats and Roaches

125 Sount E Street is full of them

According to Chinese astrology 2008 is "The Year of the Rat" and with the movie Ratatouille making it into the big time its no wonder we're hearing more about rats.

But at 125 South E Street, the rats and roaches have taken over and its impossible to imagine anyone living in or around such filth and unsanitary conditions. Even the cat seemed sickly (it also couldn't hear).

125 South E Street Lake Worth

While LWM was on site, Marty and the city street sweeper showed up to clean up the area in front of the house

It was just on channel 10 news. The owner who is in the hospital, has given the city permission to spray the OUTSIDE only...not the inside. She has 2 cats and an iguana inside. Who is feeding these animals? This is animal abuse for sure. Please, do something for these poor animals.

I hope this woman gets the help she desperately needs. Have you seen the rat lady over at the Cultural Plaza. She walks around with this thing on her shoulder. I feel very sorry for the rat.
