TOWN OF PLOVER, Wis. (AP) - A Plover woman has been ordered to leave her rat-infested mobile home.
Portage County health officials say Darlene Flatoff has kept more than 300 rats in her home since last March. An inspection report says the home doesn't have adequate sewage disposal and is overrun with rats and their droppings.
Health officials say the problem began when Flatoff brought home domesticated rats from the pet store, they bred with wild rats and her place became infested.
The Wausau Daily Herald says the sheriff's department expects the eviction to be carried out within the next 10 days. The rats will be removed and the mobile home will be razed
