Rat Life: A Documentary

Thanks to a post on the Ratties Livejournal community, I discovered a fascinating documentary that is available for viewing online. You can also buy the documentary on DVD at the same site. Some question why the scientists did what they did, and the morality of it, as well as what good did it do, i.e., what did they learn. I am not sure myself what their goals were, but what I've seen so far is absolutely fascinating - that is, to see what a domestic rat does when faced with a more natural environment.

Please note that the rats were not entirely in the wild, but rather in a controlled (to a certain extent) enclosure...
