New York City’s parks, subway tunnels, and sewers, Vietnamese rice paddies where rats are caught and sold as food, Mumbai’s streets paroled by the revered Night Rat Killers, British farms where packs of terriers kill hundreds of rats per day, and in New Orleans, where scientists are studying how flooding and abandoned neighborhoods are making rats more invasive than ever.
