Pet rats are being dumped at the Wetlands Park located in east Las Vegas, according to Clark County.

Officials say the dumping has happened twice in the past two weeks with a total of 35 rats found in the area. 

The county stressed the rodents cannot survive in the wild and damage the park’s ecosystem.
