    biggest I have shot was on a chicken farm and weighed 1lb12oz but was a heavily pregnant doe. must say I approached it with some trepidation even though it had received a bisley pest control square in the chest at 15 yards. Personally id be getting a little .410 pistol for the job

    Rat isn't too bad actually - if it's grain fed (ie. off farmland). I'd go so far as to say better than rabbit.

    That I cannot say.

    Deep fried or grilled on a skewer with some chilli sauce, though, and you've got a tasty snack.

    Did you ever see them selling them by the side of the road after the harvest? Little kids waving fistfulls of spatchcocked rat-on-a-stick.

    I note as is the case with all claims of large over size animals the pics are taken so the perspective is skewed to make it seem as big as possible i.e. the animal close to the camera and any background / ref for size well behind it

    Maybe but there is little doubt that however close to the camera it's held it is still a big blimmin rat !
