Rats are trapped in a cage after they were caught from a slum area, on the outskirts of Mumbai 
Rats are trapped in a cage after they were caught from a slum area, on the outskirts of Mumbai October 29, 2011. About 44 night rat killers are employed by pest control department of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to kill the rodents in the city. Employees of the pest control department get a salary of 15,000 to 17,000 Indian Rupees ($294 to 333) while the contract labourers are paid 5 Indian rupees ($0.10) per rat they kill. The rat killers are expected to kill at least 30 rodents per night and hand over the carcasses to civic officials in the morning. If they fall short by even one rodent, they are expected to make it up the next night else they stand to lose a dayÕs pay. Mumbai is the only city in the world which employs full-time night right killers. Picture taken October 29, 2011. REUTERS/Danish Siddiqui (INDIA - Tags: ANIMALS SOCIETY BUSINESS EMPLOYMENT)
