You Have To See This Gigantic Rat Caught By An Exterminator

You’ve heard of ROUTS (Rodents Of Unusual Size) from the movie The Princess Bride.

We’re all familiar with Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame.

Our next tale of a huge rat takes us to Sweden, as now we have “Ratzilla” terrorizing a Stockholm family.

A homeowner in Sweden is breathing a sigh of relief today as a giant rat, measuring over two feet in length from nose to tail, was caught by exterminators. The enormous rodent weighed well over two pounds, and had chewed through a concrete wall before getting caught in an industrial trap set by exterminators.

Before the colossal rat was caught by the exterminator, it had chewed its way through a concrete wall, then chewed through water pipes causing a leak, and eventually made it’s home under the family’s dishwasher.

A few encounters with the rat, horrified the family, as the rodent showed signs of aggression. The family cat was actually scared to death to even go in the room.

As you can see in the above picture, this tale does not end well for the rat. When the exterminator caught the gigantic rat in the industrial trap; the rat drug the trap quite a ways before it finally met its fate.

The family in Sweden, who had been battling the rat for some time, can now stop living in fear. They haven’t had any problems with any pests since!

  1. That rat is rediculously large. I thought I caught a large rat. I caught a few once that looked like a stuffed cat. They were big, but not that big. Amazing how it can get through a concrete wall but meet its demise with a rodent trap. Pest control at its best. Thanks for the picture. Samuel de Jong
