Sweden; Home of the Giant Rat By Tom North
No, no, no, there is no horrible metaphor here, no ill will, we are really talking about an invasion of rats, the size of cats. Yes, rats that big, a true indication that this is end times, and that hell is opening, or is it a measure of a world out of ecological balance?
“A Swedish city is battling a merciless enemy, rats ‘the size of cats’, prompting authorities to call on residents to keep doors and windows closed and pre-schoolchildren inside during breaks. “There aren’t the normal rats you see in the forest. They’re as big as cats,” Benny Sagmo from the planning office of Sundsvall city in northern Sweden, explained to the national TT news agency. The rats have already spread out towards a residential area, according to Sagmo. “If we don’t put a stop to it, they can get bigger and bigger…Those who live there can’t even have their front doors or balcony doors open. I’ve told pest control that we’re going all in!” he added. Residents were told to keep doors and windows closed to prevent rats from getting access to food. They were also told to avoid having food for pets outdoors. “Remember a rat can fit through a hole that is only 20 millimeters - a five-krone coin!” the warning from the city said. In the meantime, local Trädet preschool has temporarily banned children from eating or taking their naps outside. “I decided that the children should sleep inside, because we can’t risk rats jumping into the pushchairs,” headteacher Mia Löfgren told SVT Västernorrland."
We can expect that nature will go as mad as man, as the world tumbles head-over-butt into Ragnarok. On the bright side, if there is one, as the horseman of hunger descends, at least the giant rats can be eaten:
A word of advice though to those unlucky Italians; cook the rat well as these creatures are full of parasites, including “zombie’ parasites”:
It would not do to have a mind virus control one’s ind, would it?
