Default Ratzilla

‘The cat was terrified’: Gigantic 40-cm-long ‘Ratzilla’ invades family’s apartment in Solna, Sweden

When a Swedish woman heard something scurrying around in her kitchen, she expected to find a small mouse lurking in the dark. Instead, an enormous rodent dubbed “Ratzilla” by local media emerged from under the sink and terrorized her family for days.
The epic “Viking rat” measured an incredible 40 cm long — plus tail.
“I couldn’t help but do the old classic and jump on the kitchen table and scream,” Signe Bengtsson told the English-language newspaper, The Local.



The rodent had gnawed through cement and wood to break into the the Solna apartment, pest controllers said. And once it was in, it flooded the kitchen by chewing through the water pipes connected to the dishwasher. It eventually became “so domesticated” that it “just sat under the table,” Bengtsson’s husband, Erik Korsas, said.


A few days after the first sighting, the family put their kitchen on “lockdown” and called an exterminator, The Local reported, and pest controllers brought in three giant traps. But even after the huge rat was caught by the neck, the resilient rodent continued to run around, and dashed behind the dishwasher. After it finally died, Korsas’ children were terrified that the “zombie rat” would “come back to life,” he said.
“No one wanted to go into the kitchen after, and the cat was terrified for a week,” Bengtsson said. “The pest controllers said they’d never seen such a big rat before.”



The story horrified Swedes as pictures of the hairy beast circulated online. And it became the most shared story on the Swedish daily Aftonbladet, journalist Sven Nordenstam said in a tweet.
For the past three weeks, the apartment has been rodent free, and the family said they are moving on.
“One of my sons said it was a Putin rat at breakfast this morning,” Korsas told The Local. “But my older son, who has a few more years of education under his belt, said it was much more like a Viking rat — and I agree with him.”

They needed to bring in the cat that the family had to call 911 on, that would be pay-per-view worthy.

15 3/4" not including the tail. It's a big one. I've seen some big ones in midtown Atlanta. Storage areas for restaurants in Virginia Highland in the mid 90's. They were nesting in there and were eating clear through the plastic tubs of Mayo. One of the chefs got bitten when he reached into the laundry bags. The place was completely infested. We kept a baseball bat by the door to arm ourselves when entering. I quit that bartending job a couple of weeks later. The owners had a helluva time getting rid of them...if they ever did.

This one made the news for being in a residence in a cold weather country.
