Apparently the enormous rat, which was 10 times the weight of an average rat, had been active in Shaoyang for some time, hunting and eating 7-pound fish whole.
Eventually, local farmers teamed up to catch the "ratzilla" and put an end to its reign of humongous rodent terror.
In parts of China, rat is considered highly nutritious and is often eaten, so the farmers who brought the ratzilla down then dressed the animal for its meat. According to Yahoo News, they broke two knives in their efforts to carve up the rodent.
That's a big, tough rat.
