A plague of rats has hit ricefields in the northern Philippines, which the farmers blame a drought caused by the El Nino weather phenomenon. However, government officials say it is also partly the farmers'own fault for destorying natural predators such as owls and snakes. The rats have also become a popular delicacy in the area, with locals claiming rats are high in protein, low in cholesterol and is an aphrodisiac.
