New York rats: Alcohol can solve problem, say officials
A machine, a trap door and a pool full of liquid alcohol.
That's the latest weapon in the war against rats, say officials in New York.
The rats are attracted with bait by a machine and sent through a trap door straight into a pool of alcohol-based liquid.
It's one of the most rat-infested cities in the US, with rodents moving around through rubbish and train tracks and causing chaos for many residents.
