Now that’s gross!

A giant rat was caught in Brooklyn, NY’s Marcy housing projects by a maintence worker who decided to impale it with a pitchfork.

The animal is believed to be a Gambian pouched rat.

As Reported By The New York Daily News:

It sounds like an urban legend: giant mutant-looking rats roaming a city housing project.

Only there’s a picture.

A photo making the rounds shows Housing Authority worker Jose Rivera minutes after he speared the humongous rodent with a pitchfork at the Marcy Houses.

It’s covered in white fur and looks well-fed. It appears to be about three feet long, including its hideously dangling tail.

And Rivera, 48, says it’s not the only one. He insists that while he was filling a rat hole last week, three came running out – but he was only able to nail one.

“I hit it one time and it was still moving,” Rivera said. “I hit it another time and that’s when it died. I’m not scared of rats but I was scared of being bitten.”
