There’s a rat hunting pack of dogs that roam the streets of New York at night.
The group of New Yorkers who own these dogs and who periodically let them loose are called the Ryder Alley Trencher-Fed Society (RATS) and they have been doing this for a decade.
Dogs have long been bred to be rat catchers and theSE canine rat hunters are acting out their genetic inheritance during rat hunts. See the video of the dogs in action
These dogs shake the rats to kill them, breaking their backs rather than chomping on them, which is just as well because most New York rats are full of poison.
Some animal rights organizations are against this old fashioned way of killing rats as too cruel to both rats and dogs.
But the dogs love it and work as a group, some scaring the rats out and others doing the back breaking work of killing them. LIKE New York rats getting killed no matter how it happens.
