MADISON, Wis. -

Madison police delivered some less-than-loved pets to the Dane County Humane Society after student move-out downtown last week, according to a release.

A resident called police after seeing two loose rats behind a residence near the intersection of West Gilman and North Henry streets Wednesday around 8:24 p.m., according to the release.

The officer found the cage among discarded garbage near a wall, officials said. The cage was open and the officer saw a brown rat and a black-and-white rat near the cage.

The caller told police the cage contained moldy, rotting food and a urine-soaked orange blanket, according to the release.

Officials said they rounded up the pet rats, put them in paper bags, and took them to the Dane County Humane Society.
