Rats!

Englewood, the gritty South Side neighborhood, has a rat problem. The rats are so out of control that children are afraid to go outside to play -- unless the game they're playing involves killing rats. "My son came home one night, and he came up on the porch, and he said it was such a big rat it scared him. And my son is six-foot-four," reported an Englewood resident. [NBC Chicago]
