Residents pin rat problem on Wrigley Field construction

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Tensions are on the rise in the Wrigleyville neighborhood as people complain about too many rats since the construction started at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs say they've been working with the city to deal with the problem, but haven't received any complaints recently. However, residents have said they've spotted rats running rampant.

It comes just months after an extermination company named Chicago the "rattiest city" in America.

People who are experiencing rat problems are encouraged to call the alderman's office.
