Rat catch­ers to tackle scourge

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Erad­i­cat­ing the ver­min is “im­pos­si­ble”, Paris city hall said on Wed­nes­day, but re­duc­ing their num­ber “sig­nif­i­cantly” can be achieved by block­ing ex­its from the sewer sys­tem, re­duc­ing their habi­tats and trap­ping them.
