Or, in this case, catch it round the neck. Indeed a rodent of unusual size!
A Stockholm family was horrified to find a monster “viking” rat living in their kitchen. Pest controllers who were called in to catch the beast found it measured 40 centimetres – not including the tail.
As the rat made more appearances over the next day, the family took to stomping around as they passed the kitchen to ensure they wouldn’t meet the rat from hell again.
They called the pest controllers, who arrived with three heavy-duty traps. It was caught but didn’t die immediately. Once it expired, the animal measured 39.5 centimetres from nose to the start of its tail.
It was apparently eating scraps from the kitchen trash having gnawed its way through cement and wood to gain access via a ventilation pipe. There is no information on what species it is. So if anyone can shed some light on how this individual got to be Ratzilla…
You know you got a rodent problem when the rat is almost as large as the cat….
