Someone remind me to never ever go to New York
Another 3-Foot Rat Found -- In A Bronx Foot Locker
THE BRONX (PIX11 NEWS)?
A second report of a gargantuan rat surfaced on Twitter Thursday, allegedly discovered in what appears to be the storage room of a Foot Locker in the Bronx.
The 3-foot beast might not be believable, except for a photo that was taken of a similar rat killed by a maintenance worker in August at the Marcy Houses in Brooklyn.
In that instance, experts hypothesized that it was a Gambian pouched rat that may have incorporated itself into the local NYC rat population. They were reportedly common pets, but imports were halted in 2003 after the Gambian rodent was linked to a Monkey pox outbreak.
According to residents of the Marcy Houses, several other gigantic rats have been seen, and it's possible they are breeding happily. Are we going to be seeing these rats in the subway next??
