More than 300 rats have been caught in the Baguio City Public Market as part of the Rat Catching Challenge, in which, the area with the biggest catch wins P20,000. The second placer will also receive P10,000.

According to city market supervisor Fernando Ragma Jr., an additional 186 rats have been added and a total of 317 will be delivered to the City Veterinary Office.

“Vendors are very cooperative and it seems they are enjoying the competition. We also reminded vendors to also exercise precautionary measures for their safety and health." Ragna said.

He added that with the assistance of Allan Abayao, business permits and licensing officer in the city, they have allowed the mouse trap sellers to open up to sell to some retailers.

The City Veterinary Office also provided larger containers.
