Incidents of unexpected rat appearances are frequently broadcast out of the Big Apple. Take the KFC/Taco Bell ratscapade of 2007. At a KFC/Taco Bell fast-food outlet located in Greenwich Village, a pack of rats drew big crowds and camera crews after they were discovered nonchalantly scurrying around the main eating area of the restaurant before it opened for the day. Word later got out that they regularly made themselves at home in the food prep area, too. Not pleasant information for frequent patrons, especially when news broke that the restaurant had several past rodent-related violations.

It's no wonder that with viral videos like that, some New Yorkers are worried negative coverage will hurt tourism. At least the city's in good company!
