Giant 'super rats' resistant to pesticides invading urban communities

Super rats
(NaturalNews) Like something out of a Hollywood B movie, 2-foot long pesticide-resistant "super rats" are now terrorizing urban communities in the UK.

Reports of rats the size of toddlers have been in the news in several cities throughout Britain, and experts are confirming that the stories are true.

Jeff Sullivan, a pest control specialist in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, told the UK's Daily Mail in its online edition, that a rat he recently caught was the biggest he had ever encountered in 18 years on the job:

"There is a lot of misrepresentation with guys taking photos of rats with mobile phones and holding it out at an extreme arms-length to create the illusion that it's bigger than it really is.

"But this is the real deal, it's the largest rat I've ever seen."

Sullivan captured and killed the 2-foot rat after being called to a residence in nearby Humberston to deal with a vermin problem.

"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves."
