Another Dead Rat!

Believe it or not, we came home tonight after running some evening errands, and I walked into the house and said to Eric, "The smell is back!" We went around to the side of the house and there it was--another rat keeled over in the dirt right below the swamp cooler! Eric's theory: Our neighbor has put out rat poisoning, and the rats are dying and trying to find one last gulp of water, so they make their way to the swamp cooler, hoping to catch a drip of condensation and -- too late -- they take their last breath! What's your theory?

Oh bummer! That definitely sounds like a great theory. I suppose it is good that these rats are dying and not running around your house but can't they find a new yard?
