Sydney resident believes rat with ‘killer teeth’ chewed through wheelie bin amid ‘plague’

An inner-Sydney resident believes a rat has chewed its way into her recycling bin amid a “plague” of the rodents possibly sparked by COVID-19 restrictions.

Emma Leslie came out to her yellow-top wheelie bin on Tuesday morning to find a round hole through the lid and small fragments of plastic around the hole.

The Erskineville local has little doubt what caused the hole, taking to a local Facebook community page to claim it was made by “the killer teeth of a rat”.

A number of comments on the post from locals also described their rat problems, while Leslie says her immediate neighbourhood of terrace houses is in the midst of a “post-apocalyptic, post-COVID … plague” of rats.

“We’ve all had problems over the last few months with rats,” Leslie told 7NEWS.com.au

“We believe it’s with Sydney (CBD) being a lot less full of people working and going to cafes and restaurants, and making food waste, the rats are spreading out to inner-city suburbs.

“I just don’t understand why he went for the yellow recycling bin when there’s nothing but empty wine bottles and plastic plant pots.
