The 'royal molecatcher' outlives Versailles king - Article Photos 1/6

Molecatcher Jerome Dormion uses a shovel in the park of the Chateau de Versailles, west of Paris, Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012. The king is dead, but the molecatcher lives on. He even signs SMS messages: “Molecatcher to the king.” It’s been over two centuries since Louis XVI was guillotined on Paris’ Place de la Concorde, but the job of hunting the underground rodent that so troubled French monarchs on the grounds of the Versailles palace still exists.
