LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Bengtsson-Korsĺs family first noticed something was wrong when their cat Enok refused to enter the kitchen in their flat in Solna, which is in northwest Stockholm.

Without its tail, the rat was a monstrous 15 inches long and had made it into the family's apartment by gnawing a tunnel between a wooden panel and concrete.

No child need ever go to bed hungry -- go here!

The family was unaware of their monstrous guest until it was time to take out the bins. "I was terrified. It was so huge that I barely saw what it was and I jumped up on the kitchen table," Signe Bengtsson-Korsĺs told reporters.


The rat had made a home for itself behind the family's dishwasher. It had caused a leak by chewing its way through the water pipes.

Despite attempts from Mrs. Bengtsson-Korsĺs and her two children to scare the rodent, the "Viking rat" only grew bolder and eventually dared to venture out on the kitchen floor.

Exterminators were called in and placed industrial-sized traps to catch the wretched rodent, and less than a day later one of them snapped.

When the family checked, the trap was gone. The rat was so powerful that it had carried the trap with it, snapped around its neck.


"It didn't die when it went into the trap, but scurried away. It went underneath a wooden plant, where it got stuck and choked itself to death," Mr. Bengtsson-Korsĺs said.

"It was the biggest rat I have ever seen, and it looked like it was in good shape as the fur was nice,' he added."
