Pulaski Township House Infested By Rats

By: Brenda Waters

PULASKI TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A community in Beaver County is upset.

“In my 21 years in this business I have never seen anything like it,” Pulaski Township Building Code Inspector John Clay said.

He’s talking about a rat-infested house on 44th Street. Clay went inside the house and says he saw as many as 1,500 rats.

Most of them are dead now after an exterminator placed poison in and around the house.

The house is owned by Debi Adams, a French and Spanish teacher at Beaver Falls High School.

She told Clay with her husband’s illness and financial problems she left the house in August and everything inside including several dogs.

Her actions angered her neighbors. Mary Juillerat says she felt sorry for Adams but not anymore.

“I am mad and I don’t care who knows it,” she said.

The house will be torn down 7:30 a.m. Friday and a one-block area will be evacuated.

Since Adams agreed to have the house torn down, she will not be fined by the township.

The dogs she left behind were turned over to the Beaver County Humane Society.

    No charges for animal cruelty for leaving the dogs behind?

    I had Mrs. Breit in school she is a wonderful woman and if you would watch the video on wpxi it clearly says she went back to feed her dogs. She would never just leave them she is such a nice caring lady and i feel bad that she has to go through this she is like a second mother to me and my sisters. and i dont feel that her husbands business needs to be put into this at all.

    I knew Debi. She was a wonderfully lady and, as far as I could tell, would never intentionally hurt anyone or anything. Her husband and his family are really sick. Its a shame that she got mixed up in all of that. You could never even imagine what she probably went through and is going through.
