'Of Mice And Man' Shows NYC Rodent Killer Michael Sabov Has Heart Of Gold (VIDEO)

There's an interspecies war raging in New York City, and one man is doing his best to make sure that the humans are winning.

Pest management professional Michael Sabov is fighting the good fight against the city's massive rodent population. In 'Of Mice and Man,' a short video by filmmakers Tom Mason and Sarah Klein, Sabov reveals the surprisingly humane side to exterminating New York's rodent crawlers.

“Sometimes you get numb to it and that’s just scary," Sabov says. "And the day I get numb to it is the day I’m going to want to get out of this business.”
