Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get worse.
New York’s Central Park is being overrun by giant rats, like something straight out of a horror movie.
Rats as big as bunny rabbits are roaming the streets in broad daylight and wreaking havoc, chewing through car engine wires that can cost thousands for car owners to fix.
And people are not happy.
The 311 hotline complaints about rats have totaled 12,632 so far this year.
“Central Park is overrun with huge fat rats,” a lady wrote on Facebook. “I saw a man on a bench in the rambles swatting them unsuccessfully with a rake.”
The reason for the giant rats is largely due to trash not being collected enough and streets not being cleaned properly.
The Department of Sanitation Spokesman Joshua Goodman told The Post that DSNY is committed to keeping the city clean and reducing the rat population.
“Only when residents, businesses, and the City work together can we address a problem that is as old and as persistent as the City of New York itself,”
