You don't think this is contributing to the rat problem? There are pounds of cat food feeding more rats than any 1 bad week of garbage.The Commercial Garbage Lot received complaints and press coverage about overflowing garbage during the Memorial Day weekend.
I asked the Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Island Services Committee (ISC):
Does anybody know what this mess in picture is?RIRA ISC Committee member and Founder of the World Wildlife Freedom Foundation Rossana Ceruzzi explained:
... It looks like a feast for the rats.
It used to be a feeding space for a cat that got messed up with the missing door I guess.Yesterday, you could see the hole in the construction shed.
Just checked and yes it looks bad. I will ask a volunteer to help clean up. The cat will stay though.
The cat takes care of business there by killing rats.
Today, the hole was boarded up.
