Family Finds Terrifying 16-Inch 'Ratzilla' in Their Kitchen

Mar 28, 2014

A Swedish family had to call an exterminator after finding a massive 16-inch “Ratzilla” devouring food leftovers from the trash under the sink. To help, pest control had to bring a heavy duty trap since other traps weren’t big enough.

Even the family cat, Enok, had refused to enter the kitchen while the giant rat was in residence, Erik Korsas, the home owner, told BBC News. Since the incident, the kitchen has been repaired and the family's cat has not been bothered by rats of any size, Korsas said.
