NV Energy confirmed that rodents caused the power outage at the Paris hotel on the Las Vegas Strip on Thursday night.
The predicament has been evident on the Strip for years: rats are present, but rarely seen.
“The Strip corridor is beautiful… you think about how beautiful it is and what a great place to be, rodents do, too,” said Russell Hedland from Las Vegas Pest Control.
From the restaurants, the hotel rooms, resorts, trash containers and food dropped on sidewalks, the Las Vegas Strip is a rodent’s buffet. Rodents congregate where people gather.
