The Atlantic Cities answers a question we never knew we wanted answered, but now feel like we have always wondered: Why aren’t the city’s streets littered with dead pigeons. They are everywhere, after all. The answer, among other things, is the crawling rats (and possums!) eat the flying rats. As do turtles—it is worth clicking through if simply for the opportunity to watch a video of this amazing feat of nature.
