The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

T he re­cent in­crease in the ro­dent pop­u­la­tion in Swift Cur­rent has City of­fi­cials busy work­ing to try and find the ori­gin of the pests and erad­i­cate them.

Mac Forster, Di­rec­tor of En­gi­neer­ing, said they are busy keep­ing a close watch on the rat sit­u­a­tion in town.

”Over the last three or four weeks we have re­ceived an in­creased num­ber of calls re­port­ing sight­ings of rats in the com­mu­nity. We have been fol­low­ing up on most of th­ese sight­ings and found that there were a lot of them. We have not to date, de­spite a lot of our fol­low-ups, we have not found a lo­ca­tion where rats are in­fest­ing a par­tic­u­lar lo­ca­tion in the com­mu­nity. Ba­si­cally they are just in­di­vid­ual sight­ings,” ex­plainedMac Forster, Di­rec­tor of En­gi­neer­ing.
