Video Evidence That Rats Like Starbucks Too

Lest you think that rats are only fans of garbage, cheese and fine French cuisine, here is proof that they are addicted to the sweet, sugary beverages at Starbucks.

The below videos (both of horrible quality — sorry) were shot last week by some people strolling by a Starbucks in British Columbia, Canada.

According to, one of the men behind the videos had passed by this ‘Bucks earlier in the week and spotted when he believed to be a baby rodent. Thus, he vowed to come back later in the week to catch the whole thing on grainy, cell phone video.

The site spoke to an employee at the Starbucks in question, which had gotten a clean bill of health from inspectors as recently as April 11, who said, “We know about the issue and the issue is being dealt with.”
