Bukit Batok has a new tourist attraction: Gardens by the Rats.
That may explain why these people have gathered to watch 22 men try to catch them all.
The infestation was blamed on residents feeding the stray dogs which apparently led to the rats coming out to eat the leftovers.
If this were an opposition ward, the authorities would probably blame the town council.
People feed stray dogs in other estates all the time, why rats don't come out like this leh?
My youngest daughter, when she saw the Bukit Batok rats in the news video, went "Awwwww!"
I blame Disney.
Maybe they can throw a tent around the Bukit Batok area and start a rat circus. Call it Cirque du 鼠 Leh.
