A disgusted North End resident files a complaint about the wire-munching rats that have been ceaselessly chomping on his or her engine on Commercial Street:
Four times in just the last month my car has had rat droppings and rat nesting materal on the engine and damage from gnawing wires. I must open the hood and check each time I want to drive it. Today there was a large and agressive rat on the engine. I have temporarily moved my car out of town until the city gets the rat problem under control. This is a hardship as I am elderly and need a car to get around. When will the city do something about the rats in the North End!!
