spied this morning: deflated dead rat lying on sidewalk in front of entrance to my lab building.

in spite of mit’s notoriously robust rat population, this still struck me as odd.  sick animals don’t go playing on the sidewalk; don’t they tend to rest somewhere safe?

maybe it’s one of those wacked-out animal rights groups trying to make a statement to the nefarious mad scientists who torture animals at mit.  kinda like sending someone a horse’s head, but much cheaper.  we don’t even study mammals in this building: we only kill bacteria!

[although, it'd be a bit strange if an animal-rights group killed a rodent to make a statement ... then again, extremist groups often don't make much sense to me.]
