NEW YORK -- Rats aren't exactly a rarity in New York City -- but a public display of rodents running wild in a fast-food restaurant is getting attention.
The episode was caught on video at a KFC-Taco Bell restaurant in Greenwich Village. News crews shot the video through a window from the sidewalk.
The footage shows about a dozen rats running around the floor, between counters and tables and on children's high chairs. The restaurant wasn't open at the time.
Onlookers gave a play-by-play as the rats moved about. When one rat came close to the window, someone on the sidewalk said: "He's coming for his close-up."
The restaurant chain -- which was hit by a widely publicized E-coli scare late last year -- is owned by Yum Brands, based in Louisville, Kentucky. But it's not clear if this restaurant is owned by the company or by a franchisee.
