People feeding birds, attracting rats.

Reported via Android anonymously at 13:46, Wed 7 June 2023

Sent to Leicester City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4642911.

Twice now I have saw a rat near the gardens of 53 mulberry avenue. People are throwing food onto the shed roofs and grass ouside the rear of the house. This is attracting rats when bread and whatever else they put there blows off and onto the floor. This has been reported before but someone came to look with a drone after sea gulls and pidgeons had already came and ate the food and he looked on the shed wrong roof anyway!

  • More food waste put on shed roof. AGAIN it blows off onto the pathway behind the houses to attract rats and mice. This is happening weekly sometimes twice a week. Previously reported and council came and looked on the wrong roof!
