Vermont School Deals with Rat Infestation
The Vermont Health Department will be checking in monthly with an elementary school dealing with a rat infestation.
WPTZ-TV reports that a state health inspector visited Sudbury Country School on Wednesday. State sanitation chief Al Burns says the inspector found rat droppings in the school's boiler room and other evidence of an infestation.
He said the situation is under control and students are safe. The school has brought in an exterminator, put out bait boxes along the building's exterior and put all food in containers.
The exterminator will visit the school twice a week until the problem is completely solved.
