Once again Europe is falling victim to rodent-borne disease. During the sixteenth century, bubonic plague swept England's countryside numerous times. At the beginning of that century, England experienced a series of mild winters, allowing infected rats and fleas, which would have normally died out in cold weather, to increase their numbers and spread disease in crowded and unsanitary urban environments. Contemporary observers estimated that rodent-spread plagues took almost 30,000 lives.
Unlike earlier epidemics, the symptoms of this modern plague are not oozing sores, bleeding lungs, delirium and painful death, but instead are manifested in unusual wheeled vehicles piloted by frenzied, delirious riders.
The first outbreak of Rat Patrol UK was discovered during summer of 2002 in the town of Ross-on-Wye, when Mr. Bennitto Chunkolini Prince of Darkness rode forth on a bicycle he calls 'Dr. Hannibal'. Other residents of the town have become infected as well.
