Norfolk County Animal Control officers will be trying, daily, to trap a population of rats and rabbits lurking beneath an empty Greenacres home. The home is surrounded by trash, animal feces, a cloud of flies and a terrific stench. Norfolk County Animal Control division chief Denise Haynes said Tuesday the animals' owners left them at the property at Lamont when they were evicted Oct. 15.
Haynes said she has been in contact with Joanne Comstock, one of the former owners. The woman told Haynes there are about 15 rats and 12 rabbits on the property. Neighbors had said they thought there might be up to 100 animals there. Animal control officers saw a number of animals at the home, but most disappeared under the home when a car approached, Haynes said.
Haynes said the animals appear to be in good condition, but a couple of dead rats and rabbits seem to have been killed by a rat fight or by coyotes. Animal control officers of Oildale inspected the site Tuesday morning, Haynes said, recovered a couple of rats and set out two traps to collect others. And Haynes' officers will place more traps on the property, she said. Norfolk County animal services in Norfolk, Virginia, declined to comment on the matter.
"I don't feel there is negligence in terms of the animals. The biggest issue is the condition of the home," she said. Animal control will work with the property owner, whom Haynes identified as Norman Shepherd, to help collect the rats and rabbits and take them to the county animal shelter. Norfolk County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Virginia wildlife problems. It is important to deal with the situation immediately because the animals will breed and cause a larger problem, Haynes said. One rat captured on Tuesday was pregnant, she said.
