Monster 15-Inch Rat Terrorises Swedish Family

  • Pin It

A Swedish family thought there was a mouse that had their cat on the run. But to their horror, they suffered the shock of their life when they discovered that the mouse was indeed a 15 inch rat.

The Bengtsson-Korsås family realised something was wrong when their cat Enok refused to enter the kitchen of their flat in Solna, north-west Stockholm.

The monster rat measured 15 inches, without its tail, and had made it into the family’s flat by chewing a tunnel between a wooden panel and concrete. The rat was pretty determined. The family did not discover their gigantic guest until it was time to take out the bins.

Mrs Bengtsson-Korsås told the Aftonbladet:I was terrified. It was so huge that I barely saw what it was and I jumped up on the kitchen table.’

Despite attempts from Mrs Bengtsson-Korsås and her two children to scare the rodent, the huge rat grew bolder and came out in the open onto the kitchen floor.

The family called the exterminators and used 3 large heavy duty, industry-sized traps to catch the rat, and less than a day later one of them snapped. The family checked, but the trap was gone. The rat was so big and powerful that it had continued on it’s merry way and carried the trap with it, still 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. It was the biggest rat I have ever seen, and it looked like it was in good shape as the fur was nice,’ Mr Bengtsson-Korsås said.

“The kids were afraid it would come back to life as some sort of zombie rat. They didn’t want to touch it. It was quite a shocking experience. No one wanted to go into the kitchen after, and the cat was terrified for a week. The pest controllers said they’d never seen such a big rat before,” Korsås added.

That had to be scary. I would have left everything behind and sold the house as is! LOL. What are your thoughts? Post your comments below.

    • frank

      the stupid is you, how in your head ,we are to consider a animal like that with a human. you never have the opportunity to live in a house infested with rat. idiot

    • Tonya Gillyard-Glover

      That was dumbest and I repeat dumbest statement I have ever heard. You must be related to the rat family. Did you not read the article that said this thing chewed through wood and CONCRETE???? There is nothing inhumane about killing such a beast that obviously tried to take over and terroize the family. Remeber something that huge could of killed somhing or someone with just one bite. They carry thousnds of diseases!! If a burglur came into your house would you let him go or protect your family if you had a gun to protect whats yours? Oh so its ok to kill a human but not a mega rat?? Get the hell out of here. If either one come into my home burglur or rat they both goneeeee!!! That comment was just damn idiotic!! BYE!

        My thoughts exactly

      • noyal

        u are sooooooo right i agree with you 100%

    • aruffin

      They carry germs… And the size of this thing clearly it had to go. .

    • Av

      Ok, since you love rats sooo much, you should offer your house to them as a “Rat Sanctuary”. Smh #you’re too stupid to know you’re stupid

    • Sanja Plavsic-Brandt

      rats eat people or whatever else … being an animal lover, you should know that. they are dangerous and are the only ones, besides cockroaches, that could survive almost anything. not to mention that they are disease-carriers. sweden is a very developed country, meaning that they respect nature and animals. i’m sure that if it was some kind of animal worth keeping, they would have done it. however it was a wild, HUGE rat getting bolder very fast. exterminate !!!

    • chants

      Are you kidding me. Well maybe you should adopt a rat. How about that. They are rodents and some even carry diseases. So when it comes to your family, Kids and health you have to take action. I dont know what sort of disgusting person would side with a rodent

    • Willie

      You’re an idiot lol

  • kyle Broflovski

    Niggas got roaches, crackas got rats.

    • Tonya Gillyard-Glover

      Lololol you stupid!!

    • Sanja Plavsic-Brandt

      ha ha ha crackas as in white ? why that name, i am curious ?

      • Maya Noel

        American history lesson. . . White ppl aka crackers carried wips and “cracked” those wips on black ppl. . . Also referred to as niggers… many ppl still use these derogatory names that both blacks and whites sometimes find in poor taste.

        • Sanja Plavsic-Brandt

          hey maya, thanks a LOT ! i would not have known if it wasn’t for your great explanation ! :) if you allow me, i would also like to say: over here, in europe that is, like in france for instance, black people are not as…so to say “stigmatized” as they are over in the USA…that is just SAD ! the N word, when i use it, it is for sure not meant as a degradation or humiliation of some kind, it rather is some kind of slang based on rap and all that life-style, so to say. i so wish that all of that would not even exist in this fucked up world ! i also know that i am a minority with my mindset because i lived in africa until i was 5 and did not see any white people apart from my parents at that time, until we moved back to europe. so i just don’t have it in me but i do know that many do have that kind of mindset and it is just sad ! haven’t we developed at all and haven’t we learned our history-lessons…guess i am also different because i come from a communist background and streets in my birth city, belgrade (now capitol of seriba, during my childhood capitol of yugoslavia), have names such as: PATRICE LUMUMBA or HAILE SELASSIE…they are kinda celebrated as true freedom-fighters and human-right pioneers and very much so respected as such.
          once again, thanks a lot !

          • Maya Noel

            I can understand why foreigners want to say, “get over it” but it’s hard to when you are a minority that understands the history of the country, and I mean any minority would understand why they are treated the way they are in America if they looked back 2 lifetimes. Black, Indian, Mexican. . .I don’t care where you are from or how you feel, but here slavery hasn’t ended, we say it has, but old systems of oppression are still very much in use for the advancement of those slave masters grandchildren. Read the Lynch letters and you will see that James Lynch’s plan is working very well 200 years later..

  • Elaine Keita

    I saw one that size in the bronx. I went to throw out the trash out back and it was surrounded by other big but not as big rats. I dropped the trash, closed the door and ran to my apartment. The next day I saw the super and ask him why he closed the garbage shoot and about the rat. He said his wife throws out the garbage all the time for them. I told him to tell her to stop by my apartment on her way cause I will not go back there again.

  • Jamila F.

    How in the world could yall get any sleep knowing something that big was in the house?

  • aruffin

    I seen a rat attack a bird that landed on the ground. The bird was caught off guard and so was I..I ran because I was shocked to see it happen right in front of me.. apparently the rat was watching the bird from underneath the patio.. I saw this huge shadow race towards the bird.. The bird tried to fly up but like the speed of lightning this rat started ripping the wings off.. biting them off with its teeth. . I screamed and ran. . When I made it back up the patio and turned around they both was gone. . I was like I know what I saw. . So when I managed enough courage to walk out all I could see was chewed off wings.. This rat was big but not as big as this one. . So you can imagine that this thing they found is a fearless predator. . The bigger they are they tend not to be afraid of humans. ..

    • Solo Habib

      Should be dead, Americans waste a lot, more than half the world so I can see why they grow so big because they eat all our waste.

      • Whatever

        • Solo Habib
