ARVADA, Colo. -- In Arvada, it’s not out of the ordinary to share the streets with a wildcat or bulldog.

But Swift Lewis saw rats near West 55th Avenue and Vance Street.

The rats, caught on video, were near a dumpster that's not far from a string of businesses.

It was a rat tale that he needed to tell on social media.

And like the Pied Piper himself, thousands of people are now following Lewis on Facebook after he posted his rat video.

Pest control had been called in before, and after some time off from the case, the experts returned for round two -- traps and all.
