Giant Rat Found Inside A Bronx Foot Locker

You might recognize this guy, as he bears a striking resemblance to the 3-foot-long beast that was stabbed with a pitchfork in Brooklyn last year. That one was believed to be a Gambian pouched rat, also known as African giant pouched rat, and may have been someone’s escaped pet.

However, it was not the first one spotted in that area, and locals believe they are multiplying fast.

A pair of rats and their offsprings can multiply to about 8,000,000 in one year.

With this spotting in Bronx, we think it’s safe to say this superbreed of mutant rat is priming for a takeover of the five boroughs.
