Rodents bite about 100 New Yorkers each year, according to city Health Department statistics.
In 2010, rats chewed on 86 New Yorkers, and so far this year, 29 people reported getting their skin pierced by a rodent’s sharp teeth.

The Health Department records bites from people reporting it on their website, and from emergency room doctors. But many more bite horror stories may go unreported.

Some of the bites come from mice, the Health Department noted. In 2010, 34 of the total bites came from mice, often snapping at people while caught in traps.
