Giant Water Rats Infest German Town of Halle

A plague of giant rat-like creatures is terrorising a town in Germany and threatening to wreak destruction.


Media reports indicate the town of Halle in central Germany is under siege from hordes of rodents that have taken over in recent days.

It began when large numbers of the giant water rats emerged from the River Saale and started infesting the local community.

Residents fear their home town could soon be "overrun" said one. This may not be so far-fetched because coypu – the unwelcome creature in Halle, is infamous for breeding in high numbers quickly. One female coypu can become pregnant three times per year, giving birth to up to 13 offspring at a time.

They also are capable of demolishing large swathes of vegetation with their ravenous appetites, while their burrowing behaviour is also a cause for concern.

One concerned resident said: "We just couldn't believe it when the creatures turned up in the river.

"A few people thought they were cute but as soon as we discovered they were rats many people became frightened.

"At the minute their numbers seem to be under control but many of us are worried they'll end up multiplying like ordinary brown rats, so the town will be overrun."

Meanwhile in Sweden, a family hit the headlines for catching a giant rat in their kitchen.

Erik Korsas and his family had to buy extra large traps to catch the 40cm long rat, which had even scared off the family cat. Before being finally caught, "ratzilla" reportedly ate the contents of the family's fridge.

Let's hope the super-sized critters don't know the way to Britain.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
