BUT the family could do nothing about it because.
"Local Judge ruled to spare life of rat that harassed family cat"
Ordering it was P.C. & infringing on the rights of the rat ,further more ordering the family keep & care for the rat & if it died while under their care they could be prosecuted.
"protective"services intervened because their child heard talk about them killing a rat. Rick
