    For the past three decades, a team of dogs and their owners has been venturing out at night to hunt rats in New York. But for Richard Reynolds, founding member of the Ryders Alley Trencher-fed Society (RATS), the hunt is not only about tackling the city’s rodent problem. “We’re really doing this for the sake of the dogs,” he said. “We’re all about dogs.”
