A blogger on Weibo has posted pictures of a swarm of white mice scurrying about in the underbrush at Beijing’s Olympic Forest Park earlier this week.
Some photos show more than ten of the critters scampering around at the same time.
The web user surnamed Chang is said to have reported the problem via the city’s hotline, the Beijing Times reports. When contacted, a worker for the hotline confirmed the call and reported that all relevant authorities and offices had been alerted to the problem. Beijing hotline, not just for snitching on smokers anymore.
Beijing’s Olympic Forest Park is at the north-end of the Olympic Green, built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It features lakes, trees and hordes of rodents.
Hopefully the park will be up and running in shape by the time the 2022 Winter Olympics come around.
