Giant Rats Discovered in England

A pest control agency found two giant rats in a factory in the East Midlands. Both were about 2' in length. At first, some thought they may have been coypu, a semi-aquatic, herbivorous rodent originally from South America, but experts dismissed the claim, as they did not have the orange teeth found in the species. The coypu was hunted from the wild some 20 years ago. It is now illegal to own one without a license.

A spokesman for the pest control agency, Rentokil, said, "It goes to show that where there's a food source, these rodents will grow big."
