Marian Cook lives near 116th Place and Central Park Avenue in Mount Greenwood. She was the first to bring up the topic and later said she keeps the light on in her garage overnight in an attempt to keep rats away.

Tobin also watches her grandchildren who live on 103rd Street near Spaulding and Christiana avenues. She blames nearby home construction for the emergence of rats there. In fact, her dog recently killed a large rat in her daughter's backyard.
