Vancouver has a rat problem. These ubiquitous black boxes aren’t traps, though. Bait stations keep poison secure so undesirable animals – rats, mice – can access the poison and then go off to die while “desirable” animals like birds and pets stay safe.
The bait stations are a reminder that there’s a dark side where unwanted and often unseen living creatures exist.
