The following is excerpted from “Cuccinelli Smells a Rat,” ARL Now, Arlington, Virginia, Jan. 12, 2012: “Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli called a local talk radio show on Tuesday to complain about rats in D.C. Specifically, Cuccinelli was peeved about a D.C. law--the Wildlife Protection Act--which, since March 2011, has outlawed some common pest control practices including the use of lethal traps on certain species of rats and mice (and on other wild animals that get stuck in homes). ‘Last year, in its finite wisdom, the D.C. City Council passed a new law--a triumph of animal rights over human health,’ he told the hosts of WMAL’s ‘The Morning Majority‘ show. ‘Those pest control people… aren’t allowed to kill the rat. They have to relocate the rat. And… that’s actually not the worst part. They cannot break up the family of the rat.’... Industry leaders say the Wildlife Protection Act makes it prohibitively expensive for homeowners to pay for a letter-of-the-law pest control service. Such a service, they say, would involve trapping an entire family of animals in and around a home and then driving around the District looking for an uninhabited wooded spot to let the critters out.” “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened: (Romans 1:21).
