    I may well be wrong but is that, in fact a bamboo rat?

    Bloody good eating if it is.

    Yes. I still wouldn't kill one, though.

    As are many foreign sex tourist who wash up on these shores, shall we drown them too? You get no argument from me.

    Sorry NR. In my house, around my kid, death for rats is the order of the day.

    See the figures on Lepto in Thailand?

    Fairy nuff. I just said I wouldn't kill them. It would be the far away release option with me. I just couldn't kill an animal. If one of the dogs had hold of a rat & was killing it, though, I wouldn't intervene.

    I agree with NR, no way could I watch an animal drown/die, no matter how 'disease-ridden'.

    My pet rats were absolutely lush, always trying to groom me and fascinating and fun and cute to watch.

    I used to keep pet rats and they are great but they do breed a lot of pinkies. 6 or 7 at a time. Fortunately, I also had a pet boa.

    For some reason I find this statement more than a tad disturbing.


    Yet, in retrospect, somewhat arousing.

    Don't keep males and females together?

    Or were you breeding them for the purpose of snake food?

    Was somewhat of a recycling operation. Had two breeding pairs of rats.

    True. But you'll need a larger tube to get them in.

    I started off with a live trap. Successful, one a day for the first week. Let them go near the river. Then nothing.

    Then tried poison. Picked up 17.

    Now they ignore the poison and the trap. They have burrowed through concrete to get into the kitchen, and disabled the washing machine.

    The cat is terrified of them, need a terrier like that one in the video. Brave lad.

    Go visit somebody a few miles away you don't like and drop them off, keep doing that till you are free of rats, when you shortly after hear them complaining about rat problems, rent them your trap

    I should apologise for the terrible video (Mod rightly deleted) of the drowning rats.
    Perhaps the addition of 'Blue Danube' as background music was sick.
