‘Super rats’ as big as cats invade Welsh seaside town
Cat-sized rats invade a seaside community in Wales.
The alarmingly large rodents, which locals have dubbed “super rats”, are taking up residence in Tenby, a popular seaside town that attracts thousands of summer tourists, according to The Sun.
This particular breed of vermin is resistant to over-the-counter poisons and has teeth so strong they can gnaw through concrete.
Residents there fear the creatures – which measure 20 inches long from head to tail – and one told the outlet they “live in terror”.
Local boatman Roger Miles lamented to the BBC that the pest problem has been “really worrying” in recent weeks.
“Early evening, dusk, early morning, rats everywhere really,” he said.
“There is a certain area where you see parts of the cliff have been eroded. It’s been going on for a long time, it’s been left alone and something has to be done about it. »
