Rat has contributed to the extinction of many species of wildlife including birds, small mammals, reptiles, invertebrates, and plants. True rats are omnivorous and capable of eating a wide range of plant and animal foods. True rats have a very high birth rate. When introduced to a new area, they quickly reproduce to take advantage of the new food supply. In this video, to prevent rats from destroying plants, farmers use dogs to catch rats.
