In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film Rat Film, Harold Edmond, a rat exterminator in Baltimore, helps a resident figure out how to handle the rats infesting her backyard, a common problem in certain Baltimore neighborhoods. After rats learned to avoid the poisoned peanut butter, she switches to BBQ sauce with better success. “They figured it out,” Harold tells her.  Rats may be a “stable and predictable creature” as the narrator tells us here, but they also hold a peculiar fascination and even garner some respect from locals as they rampage through lower-income neighborhoods.
