TOWN OF PLOVER (WITI) — Darlene Flatoff was evicted from her Town of Plover home in Portage County for having too many pets.

Officials say Flatoff was given her first pet rat as a gift, but apparently over the course of a year, one rat multiplied into hundreds.

Now, after ignoring warnings to get rid of the rodents, she’s being evicted.

The Portage County Health Department has deemed Flatoff’s home unsafe to live in, and the town is in the process of having it condemned.
