New Delhi, Dec 27 (ANI): Tanggulashan town officials have come up with a unique plan to kill grassland-destroying rats.
They have erected about 830 bird perches to attract hawks and wolves, which in turn can kill the rats, reports China Daily.
The town, referred to as the "first town of the Yangtze River source", has been struggling with the problem, leading to desertification.
In 1998, the local government started to wipe out the rats with a chemical called rodenticide.
But it had a negative impact on the grassland.
The government recently came up with the idea to attract hawks and wolves to kill the rats. (ANI)
