MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Students say rats are taking over a school in Memphis.
White Station High School students took pictures of the rat infestation after weeks of dealing with the invading rodents. Students said the rats have even disrupted classes.
"People actually see them firsthand in the hallways and they just talk about how disgusting it is," said a White Station student who asked to remain anonymous.
The student also said the rats have disrupted classes in some situations when they have dropped from the ceiling.
"They obviously freaked out and it climbed on the desk and roamed around," the student said.
She claims a large portion of the student body thinks the school is a quote "disgusting place" and wants the problem addressed.
"One of our teachers set up mouse traps, and he'll come in the next day and just take pictures with it, and they kind of think it's a joke," she said.
Shelby County Schools released the following statement on the matter:
