Pic: Would you look at the size of this recently deceased rat found in north Dublin?
Listen, if you can’t stand rats, look away now and don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The sight of a rat is enough to make many people squeamish and sightings of the creatures has increased in our capital in recent times, due in no small part to works on the Luas line in the centre of Dublin at the moment.
David Wynne had recently noticed that food that he had left out for his dogs in his home in Glasnevin in north Dublin was being eaten by a mysterious visitor or visitors that had been entering via the trees at the back of his house, which is located close to railway tracks.
David set traps in an effort to catch the hungry thief in question and was surprised to discover just how big the furry fella was.
The shovel should help provide some scale here, let’s just say it kept itself well fed.
Apologies to all of you who were eating while reading this post, but don’t say we didn’t warn you.
