39.5 inch rat found in Swedish home
NASHVILLE (WZTV) -- Imagine seeing this scurrying around your kitchen floor. That's exactly what happened to a family in Sweden. A rat measuring 39.5 inches from nose to the end of it's tail was captured behind the family's dishwasher.
Exterminators placed a massive trap in the home and were shocked to see the entire thing missing. The trap had snapped onto the rodent's neck, but it was strong enough to walk away. It wasn't until the trap chocked the rat to death that exterminators were able to see just how big it really was.
The family says they now know why the family cat was always afraid to enter their kitchen. The exterminators who helped the family say it's the biggest they have ever seen and believe it got into the home through a ventilation pipe.
