Rats in Denton
No, not the Labour type who are often seen infesting this area close to election time, but this time it is the furry type who are a far lot less of a pest.
The deceased rat pictured above is currently in the road on City Ave and it is only a matter of time until it gets squashed by a passing car.
Ever since the bubonic plague rats have suffered from extremely bad press. Even into the modern era many people are still petrified of them. I myself am not particularly disturbed by rats, especially the life expired variant, however the locals in Denton sure seem wary. I think they fear it may reawaken from the dead and run up their trouser leg or something if they get too close because despite the curiosity, everyone is keeping a 'safe' distance.
