Yes, today’s column is a return to the Spanaway House of Rats that was driving neighbors Richard and Sharon Collins crazy months ago, when it seemed no one would ever clean up the home that had sold in foreclosure.
Yesterday, someone did – but at what cost?
The TLC channel’s “Hoarders: Buried Alive’ footed the bill for the cleanup, hauling literally tons of trash from the home now owned by Canadian brothers Mark and Tony Gore. To their credit, the Gores showed up, donned hazmat suits, and went to work.
And yes, there were rats.
““It’s worse than you can imagine,” Mark Gore said. “There are dead rats. There are live rats. My brother killed a three-legged rat in the kitchen.”
