Per the reader: "This area has always been a rat haven, but it has really gotten nuts since about early March."
In the video below, the rats are seen moving back and forth in front of Abetta, the longtime boiler and welding service, and a stray bag of garbage.
"Not sure where the garbage bags are from since it's not garbage day on First Street — nobody else has garbage out," the reader points out.
Some of the rats also jump up into the chassis and the wheels of the parked cars nearby.
"At one point I counted 12 rats while filming these videos. There are even some cute little baby rats."

Residents can file rat and mouse complaints with 311 here. Whether the city might take corrective action is another story...
