Packages of dead rats prompt post office evacuation



Castillo sells the wild jungle rats for $50 apiece in his Florida religious artifacts stores. The story gets weirder: After the post office evacuation, a bomb squad showed up at Castillo's shop.

The Palm Beach Post reports the bomb squad removed the door to his shop and sent in a robot to retrieve a package.

According to the paper: "Castillo paid $300 to have his door repaired, a bill he wants the city to pay. He also wants answers from the post office and the city about the way they handled the incident."

Ultimately, hazmat officials concluded the packages were nontoxic, so officials aren't sure why people got sick in the first place. A fire department official guessed the reaction might have to do with the Ebola virus scare. The postal workers were back to work Monday.
