Nuenen: Petition against Rat Plague

Three women from the small town of Nuenen in the province of Brabant have started a petition collecting signatures to convince the municipal council to take action against the rat plague there. The town has been suffering from rats for many years. In 2008 and 2009, the municipality spent 15,000 Euro to exterminate the rats. Recently, the alderman responsible said that no further action is necessary because rats are not a danger to peoples’ health. He is also of the opinion that if there are rats, the inhabitants can fight them themselves. The alderman said that in any case, the municipality has no money for this purpose.
