KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

A viral post revealed that at least two stores in the Prien Lake Mall have a rodent problem.

Amy Miller took to Facebook to drop a "little PSA" to the SWLA Restaurant News & Reviews Page about a "GIANT rat" that she claimed was "the size of a small dog."


Her post was shared over 200 times and, according to KPLCTV, prompted an investigation that resulted in critical and non-critical citations issued to Dick's Sporting Goods and the Great American Cookie Company near JC Penney—not to be confused with the location in the food court.

According to comments on both Amy's original post and a story posted by KPLCTV many others had experiences with rodents in the Prien Lake Mall as well.


Have you ever seen a rat in a public place? Have you ever seen a rat in a restaurant? If you did would you still eat at that establishment?

Since we're on the topic, it reminds me of a standup routine from Hannibal Burress where he talks about New Orleans.

Definitely worth the watch.
