Residents of Mariquina, northwest of Metro Manila, have been able to pocket more than 3 euros for each rat hunted in the past three days thanks to a municipal program which ends this Friday and aims to stop the spread of leptospirosis, a disease transmitted by rodents.

Dozens of people have come to the town hall since Wednesday with the dead rodents in plastic bags or put in metal cages to get their reward from municipal employees: 200 Philippine pesos (3.49 euros or dollars) per head.
