    Mutant rats the size of cats in Britain

    Post by papa_umau on Sun 13 Apr 2014, 1:08 pm

    Mutant super rats 'the size of small cats' are immune to poison and making their home in Britain's cities.

    Pest controllers are now looking at using stronger types of poison which would require the permission of the Health and Safety Executive.

    The city's pest controllers are reporting that the disease-carrying rodents have become resistant to the bait typically used to kill them.

    And Sean Whelan, of Whelan Pest Prevention, told the Liverpool Echo: “All around Merseyside there’s been a problem.

    “We’re also seeing bigger rats in Liverpool. They’re super rats in my opinion.”

    Rat-catchers say the rodents are gorging themselves on food left in bins near take-away, restaurants and houses.

    Sean said: “Access to food is so easy for them.

    “They’re like humans, they eat and eat and get bigger and bigger.”

    Well, if that does not encourage us take more care with waste food nothing will.

    What do you think of the idea of rats the size of cats ?

    There is an old song that springs to mind here: "There are rats, rats, as big as blooming cats in the Co-operative store !

    Nothing new here I think.

    While you might be right mate, I for one would not like to go face-to-face with a rat as big as a cat.
