'Rat girl' bred thousands of rodents and then released them onto city streets

A rat-mad woman has single-handedly launched a city-wide infestation after breeding thousands of rodents and letting them go.

Erika J aka Rat Girl has spent years taking in rats and "compulsively breeding them", according to public health officials in San Francisco, California.

On one occasion they exterminated 1,000 of the furry pests in a hotel when she was staying.

Californian television channel KTVU said the 43-year-old's rodent obsession had become so bad officials now confiscate her rats "whenever they can" - but say she always seems to find more.
